4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service
Needs a little attention to detail
Nice hotel, could have been cleaner. Housekeeping need to look up for cobwebs. Shower a little temperamental and morning much room to move around.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not a bad stay but could have been better.
The hotel has seen a lot of improvements since our last stay and it is obviously a work in progress. The room was very good, the bathroom decent. Our reception was very good with helpful staff. The evening meal was okay as well but the staff were very dour. The set up for the restrictions was well thought out and reassuring. Breakfast was poor with every item burnt or overcooked to the point of being inedible. I didn’t raise this as no staff came to see how we were getting on and with a long journey ahead I didn’t have time to chase them.

Generally good.
Most of stay was good including service main part of hotel and food. Not sure about other rooms but our bedroom was a bit “tired” and in need of some updating.
