2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We booked this hotel considering several factors, one of which was the hotel reviews so, I am annoyed that our experience was at odds with those reviews. We would not have booked this hotel had we known about the issues we came across. The room was in what appeared to be an old stable block set apart from the hotel, in itself no problem. But the main issue was the dreadful smell emanating from the bathroom compounded by very little ventilation even with the bedroom window open. Also, there was a deep depression on the bathroom floor. I suspect that there was a broken floorboard beneath the vinyl floor covering. The bedside light by one of the beds was inoperable, even when we managed to retrieve the switch from behind the headboard. The wardrobe door did not shut properly. The breakfast was good but served in the run-down bar area on tables that had a sticky residue. We were booked in for four nights but left after three.

Top spot, super friendly team
Great place to stay, super friendly and accommodating staff who went over and above. We were delayed in arriving - but they waited to greet and make us comfortable and allowed us to park the car next day. Lovely breakfast in the morning - highly recommend.
