4/5 Good

Travelled with partner, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Friendly obliging people and service if a bit disorganised. Food was good and bed was very comfortable if a bit small. We were in room 10. We only had one towel but when we asked they gave us another and when we asked again they gave us hand towels. Bulbs missing from room so a bit dim. Also strangely a plug missing from sink in bathroom. Excellent breakfast . On the whole for the price paid good value.

Hotel is lovely. Hotel is also in need of soft close door closers! Every time some idiot let the door bang close behind them (rather than being considerate) the hotel shook/BANGED. En suite shower was beautiful with the LED mirror etc...
