I did not stay . Due to the hotel being shut to covid. still took my money . So I presumed it was open for key workers contacted the hotel and they refused a refund. Even tjough the hotel itself called me to apologise and they were also confused as to why the booking was accepted and money taken. Poor money grabbing from both

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Series of disappointments, starting with poor service at the pub and average food. The place appears severely neglected. The room is decent sized but poorly maintained with fixtures in need of repair or not working (bathroom exhaust). Room was noisy (right next to the main road) with a noisy flush. The shower tray was extremely dirty with mold and dirt around the tray lining. Bathroom has no window and with the exhaust not working, was not pleasant. We were told on arrival that no breakfast is being served (not mentioned before) although there would be a small takeaway bag of sandwich, croissant, fruit & juice. This could have been communicated before arrival. Overall, would not recommend.
