Very outdated hotel needs loads of modernisation, we had problem in our room there was no hot water and at first we could not turn the bath tap on at all. It took 2 members of stuff to figure it out how to do it and and hour at least. No maintenance personnel on site after 5 pm so the cleaning staff hat to fix those issues.The hotel has some nice interesting history tho, food was lovely but pricey £18.50 main and limited choice . Staff are friendly and helpful.

the staff were great. property was in a nice area but a little bit remote if you do not drive as the one bus service was poor. the car park was quite busy. slightly dated building but it was clean. there was noise from other guests. food was very good. i probably would not stay again as there was not s lot to do in the immediate area but it would probably be better if the weather was hot.
