Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bar, pub and food was good and value for money. Bar staff were great. The accommodation was however very dated and dark with no ventilation. The bath/shower had limescale stains. The bathroom floor felt spongey under the lino possibly rotting. Well over priced.
