A mixed bag
We had lunch at the hotel which was lovely and great quality but the evening meal we had was crucified and the breakfast they didn’t have a clue what they were serving didn’t know how many of each items they have on there breakfast even when it written on there menu and it came out cold. Looks lovely on arrival but dose need some tlc in place ( lick of paint). The room was fine, clean and ready before check in which was fantastic for us. But they put the heating on in September in the room and it was just far to hot.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing
The first thing that let this hotel down was the bathroom had only a few sheets of toilet roll and the shower had a dispenser but no shower gel. Then I went down for a swim in the morning, the key card states collect towels from reception, then told at reception you need to bring the one from your room, which is not ideal I don't want chlorine on the towel I need to shower with.
