Staff were friendly and accommodating, had an evening meal that was brilliant. The room was clean and tidy. The cold tap in the bathroom didn't work which made washing hands difficult due to the hot water tap getting very hot very quickly but we were given water for drinking and able to use to brush teeth. Unfortunately the noise from the bar below was very loud, the sound of people talking loudly and general bar noise travelled through the floor to the point where you could basically hear what people were talking about. My partner and kids struggled to get to sleep due to the noise. Couldn't find anyone in charge in the morning to check out so had to lock the door and post the key through the letterbox.

*The only good thing was the attitude of the staff - very friendly. No free parking as stated, had to use pay & display away from premises. Cleanliness of the room was non-existent even without the current Covid-19 situation, no hand sanitizer see anywhere. No hoovering, dirty mugs, tea drip marks on furniture. Marks on bed throw overs. Dirty pillow cases over a yellow pillow. Bed not fit for purpose. Grime in grained around major touch areas. Didn't stay but was promised a full refund, but waiting on that one.
