Great value - a taste of class at a budget price
Booked this as part of a weekend christmas shopping. Easy check in, spectacular outside, nice, clean, comfortable inside. Room was in 'The Lodge' which is a seperate set of buildings to the main hotel - little odd to have to walk outside to get to ( no adjoining connection ) but they have catered for the budget traveller which is fine.
Room itself was fine - bit like a travelodge room really - clean, roomy, comfortable - great mattress - REALLY comfortable and fantastic shower - would be a crying shame not to make use of it !
Staff were friendly and attentive, we arrived around 18:45 intending to go out to eat somewhere but to be honest, we were christmas-crackered and were asked if we'd like to book a table in the small restaurant - we did so and took advantage of the excellent value set 3 course dinner @ 13.50 - not 5 star but very nice, esp. the freshly cooked fish & chips - the batter was light and my wife and I both said we preferred it to a standard batter. Had a bottle of decent quality Merlot too from the pleasant little bar at I think around 15 quid.
Breakfast too was excellent - cold ham, swiss cheese slices, warm bread rolls, cereals, greek yoghurts, prunes, pears & peaches in syrup, grapefruit, croisants, jams, marmite, a variety of fresh fruit juice, apples, bananas, tangerines, cooked breakfast included eggs ( poached, scrambled, fried ), bacon ( nicely cooked ), decent quality sausages, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms ( they were superb ), toast,
We'll be back !
