10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic! Gorgeous room which I'd have expected to pay more for. No food on Mondays (which is when I stayed) but they were really helpful recommending where I could order in from and bringing it up to me. Lovely friendly people.

6/10 Good

Food was great. The room was not particularly clean, a bit tatty, dust in certain places and had to request a bed for the little one even though we'd organised it upfront - in their defence, a manager had been seconded from another hotel to help out and he was extremely new.
