I booked this hotel knowing that it was currently through some renovations. What I didn't expect as a single person travelling was to be placed up on the top floor with three other vacant rooms all currently being renovated, mine being the only room not being worked on and which was very dated sort of thing you would expect in a bed and breakfast house. And guess what, it was right outside the out dated caged lift. everything outside the room had a nice layer of dust on it. But the room was clean, out fashioned, but clean. Nice touch was a piece of shortbread and muffin under a glass dome. When the workman had finished at the end of the day, the rooms were sorted and guests moved in. What I saw, these newly renovated rooms looked great. So don't go into room no 11 unless its been renovated, or unless you have a fettish on caged lifts! Food was lovely, gardens pretty, but there is absolutely nothing nearby to spend your money on. Wont be going back there that's for sure.
