A lovely hotel, very comfortable room and pleasant staff
Ken, au1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Fawlty Towers
We felt that we paid a lot for a little. Our room was at the end of the corridor, which was ok. However, it smelt musty, there were cobwebs in the bathroom and on the bedroom window ledge. Did i mention our view? Well, it was of the car park. We did sleep well, bed was comfy if a little soft but adequate. Breakfast next morning was like a scene from fawlty towers. Waitresses rushed off their feet, people queuing, very little buffet and i certainly wouldn't have paid separately for the full english as it was nothing more than a children's portion. Breakfast next morning was much more organised and with the added bonus of waiters who were friendly and couldn't do enough. The hotel itself was dated and to quote my partner 'smelt & resembled an old persons home', the carpets added to the atmosphere. On a good note, we received a daily paper each morning! Also it is in a good location for the centre.

Fair 4.0
Not as good as lsat time
What was most upsetting was the fact that when we arrived they had no record of our booking! Fortunately a room was available. We found the hotel a bit shabby, dirty carpets. Food orders breakfast took far to longe and when it arrived was nor what we ordered. Felt as if the place was understaffed.

No food available
Only disappointing bit was not being able to order food, was told to go into restaurant and ask but was told was too late. So walked into town. Didn’t have breakfast so can’t comment. Room was ok.
