    Crying out for some TLC

    This was a dog friendly hotel, and I used a free bonus night. How, since most of my collecting nights were in Spain, where the hotels are excellent & much less expensive, I had to put £21 towards our stay & pay £10 for the dog. The hotel is very dated & dilapidated, first impressions really poor, a bit of tidying up & some weeding wouldn’t go amiss. The outside area was very poor, and the inside reception not much better. Our room on the other hand was very clean, warm & quite modern. The WiFi worked and water was hot. The flat screen tv had all the Freeview channels. Our window looked onto a large mobile phone mast. We were later down to breakfast the next day, although only 9.15 (Breakfast was served until 10.30) and as soon as we entered the dining room a full cooked breakfast was presented to us. No time for cereal or juice, which was on offer. It’s in a lovely part of the country and under new management- so maybe things will improve but I wouldn’t have booked had I seen it before and I would have been appalled to pay £67 (which is what it would have cost without the bonus night. Very disappointed.

    Good little stopover

    Looks like a work in progress in places but no issues with the comfort and quality of our room, which was quiet despite the place being by a crossroads. Dinner menu a little limited in choice but food of good quality, good buffet breakfast (great for diy bacon butties!). Comfortable bar and restaurant areas, good views if hadn't been wild & wet outside. The guys running the place were very friendly, helpful (and busy!).

    The staff are very friendly and the views are beautiful. The only downfall is that it is so far from the town and costs about £50 for a taxi

    Relatively cheap accommodation

    The owner was very helpful and made us welcome. We happened to stay during a cold snap and the only heating was an electric convector in the room - which was barely adequate. Overall it was OK.
