Dated and in need of a freshen up
Lovely staff and quick check in when we arrived. The room was spacious and clean, however, the bathroom could have been cleaner. Run down looking and it was obvious it had not been cleaned properly, hairs on the floor and streak marks on the bath. Had dinner in the hotel that evening, the food was lovely, but we were asked to leave before our time was up as they wanted then table (we were told that we would have one hour , forty five minutes). We had breakfast in the hotel the next morning, but it was really disappointing, the bacon and pudding were sour and inedible. Overall, the hotel Is a bit dated and run down and in need of a good freshen up, would probably stay there again, but would definitely not have breakfast.

Lovely hotel. Not a huge hotel by no means but comfortable and friendly and the bed was very comfortable. A powerful shower in the morning which was a great way to start the day. Hotel was nicely decorated for Christmas with tasteful garlands and lighting. Will stay again.
