The food was excellent.very well presented, hot and menu catered for everyone.the service in the restaurant was very efficient.staff and owners very friendly.i was disappointed in the decor of the place.it is very tired looking in the bedrooms and stairway.if they did the paintwork and new carpets throughout the property it would be really improved.they are trying their hardest but need to invest in it.

    Cer one night stay.

    Helpful people who run and operate the hotel. A few problems. Willow is a very noisy bedroom with an unpleasant hum coming from either a refrigeration unit or something else. When we arrived, no toilet paper.The towels were damp. No heating of any sort. At least have a heated towel rail. The room was adequate and small with just one small window up quite high. For £130 per night, we have had much much better in the UK and certianly over the channel. Breakfast from 8.30 till 9.390. We arrived at 9.10am. No cereal bowls! Had to ask. The cold buffet was pretty basic. The coffee was weak. The full English breakfast was generous. The room did not live up to the 'look' in the photographs on the website. If the price had been more reasonable then we might have accepted the various complaints.
