Go elsewhere
The hotel itself was rundown. The staff where all friendly and helpful unfortunately the hotel itself wasn’t great. Our room was clean but there was a smell in the bathroom that wouldn't go away. The hotel is not at all suitable for less able bodied people. Not only does it not have a lift the bath itself is very high so hard to get into. In the bathroom the taps all had limscale on them and the grouting on the tiles was missing. The shower was powerful which is a plus but the water would not go straight down the plug, it took a while to drain. There is no onsite parking ,the closest car park was a few minutes walk away and you have to get a ticket from reception for a discount. I eneded up paying £8 a day for parking. The most disappointing part of the hotel though was the breakfasts. One thing i look forward to is a cooked breakfast when I'm on holiday and this was not provided. What was provided was a small box of cereal with a small carton of milk ,a muffin and a small carton of juice. All of which you had to collect from reception and take back to your room to eat. There was 3 of us and only 1 chair so not the best experience. What you get for breakfast should be made clear when booking not when you get the hotel. We would have gone to another hotel if we had of had the money like quite a few customersdiddo while we was there. All in all a very disappointing experience and we would not be going back.

Great stay
Hotel was in a great location. Friendly staff. No on site parking which wasn’t clear when we booked. But multi-storey car park near by. A little tired in places, but really liked the quirky layout due to its age. Would definitely stay here again.
