Interior could do with refreshing. Service mixed, depending on staff could be quick or slow and they didn’t seem engaged. WiFi in rooms poor. Felt like it’s relying on its location not the overall experience.

Disliked: Staff & service
Location is a major positive. Hotel is very clean well maintained general areas open to all look well presented but sound travels easily from the corridors into rooms and to a lesser extent room to room. Our room was very small, it is difficult to remember the last time I stayed in such a compact room going between bed and arm chairs almost sideways if you of larger frame. Service - is not a strength, reception was fine but waiting staff did mot seem local (but more like contract Eastern European often found in large cities) they were slow to work out arrivals to seating areas. Waiting times outside and for some in the bar appeared longer than I’d have expected. Generally not as good as I had expected if I were returning to the area I would try one of the nearby hotels instead.

Gorgeous, relaxing stay.
We stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and the food and service were both amazing. Delicious food, with very quick and attentive service from polite and helpful staff. We were accommodated with vegan options which were lovely (and even vegan biscuits in our room!) we had coffee in the bar after dinner which is very cosy and relaxing. Our room was comfortable, we stayed in the standard room size which was perfect for a couple, we would probably stay in a bigger room if we had brought our dog! Very dog friendly hotel and all in all a very pleasant, relaxing stay. We will be back!
