Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
A big old building in need of major refurbishment, very tired looking, bedrooms have had a half hearted attempt to smarten up but our bathroom had a mismatch of tiles in the bathroom and floor was dirty! The Manager was continually busy for the 3 days we were there, running breakfast on her own so service wasnt brilliant, we asked for our tea to be refilled but it never happened but she was doing her best and with a smile! We had dinner one evening, the menu is reduced understandably due to covid but just 4 starters of which king prawns was unavailable and then 20 minutes after ordering the waitress (Emma, who was absolutely amazing a true asset to the business and made our evening!) Came back and said they only had one fish so i had to change my order, my partner had asian noodles which were undercooked so left uneaten, a mediocre experience at best but in unusual times for the hospitality industry

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Friendly staff, clean rooms, but the side entrance door was broken, the carpets need cleaning and the menu was ok if you like burgers. The incident on Sunday evening with a family domestic after the 2.00pm BBQ was awful. The shouting, banging, and swearing continued inside and outside until 2.30am. It wasn't a pleasant experience.
