3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Staff were excellent very friendly & helpful no fault there. Unfortunately the room was disappointing, needs updating & refreshed there were obvious signs of repair needed. Facilities were not up to 4* standard, tv was tiny, milk in room was out of date, had to boil kettle on the floor & we had no hot water for a shower in the morning. Food was restricted given the pandemic but the menu choices were poor & very overpriced, £16 for caesar salad £5.75 for a small bottle of beer! Last but not least the breakfast, again due to the pandemic this was a ‘light’ continental breakfast brought to your room. I left hungry, small bag of cereal, tiny pastry, some fruit & a yoghurt pot which had separated & was inedible. The room rate was £183 including breakfast, extremely expensive for what we got & sad to say I will not return & wouldn’t recommend the hotel.

Ruined our weekend

The room was suppose to be the best in the hotel but it was freezing and very rundown. There was now hot water for a bath or shower.if you wanted a tea or coffee you couldn’t plug the kettle in unless you put the kettle on the floor as the flex wasn’t long enough, the curtains were falling off the curtain rails and you couldn’t close the bathroom window The next day the water was still not warm enough to shower. On asking to see the manager I was told he was to busy. Rubbish reaction to all problems very poor and at close on £350 per night I certainly won’t be going back.

This is a beautiful hotel in a location with fabulous views, the staff were excellent, helpful and friendly, the room was superb. The food in the restaurant was good but not exceptional for the relatively high price and with a rather limited choice.
