  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

dirty pair of boxers in one of the draws. Had to brush your teeth in the bath because the plug was stuck in the sink. Ordered a steak at hotel restaurants had to send back because all I could taste was charcoal liked they’d done it on a barbacue in the back. Rubbish for £25. Won’t be staying again.

The staff were so friendly and very helpful, every time I called down from reception they were super happy to help and brought up anything I needed very quickly. The room was gorgeous and the hotel was lovely all round. It was very quiet as we went on a weekday but perfect for what we wanted. Will definitely visit again
