Convenient for views

Our original road and was in the dormer and clean but overlooked road and pretty basic but clean. Asked if there was any chance of getting moved ,so while I was told to go and have a pint the desk lady took my wife around the available rooms and we took a room overlooking the steam rail station and mountain view.not bad for an offer price for 3 nights. It had a 4 poster bed and stand alone bath and separate shower..Although dated this added to the character and would definitely go again

Spacious room, good food, friendly staff. But room furnishing seemed old, and no toiletries were provided.
