On the positive side, the hotel was in an excellent situation and with a great deal of potential. The staff were friendly and the food was well cooked with substantial breakfasts. One could forgive the old fashioned décor, anaglypta wall paper and artex ceilings. Even the paper thin wall in the bedrooms didn't prove too much of a problem. However, the hotel seemed short staffed, badly managed and in dire need of a clean. Although the bedding and towels were fresh and clean, the mattress felt like a charity shop reject and the bedhead had to jammed by a cushion to stop it attacking you every time you moved in bed. A cracked sink adorned the bathroom, with mould on the wall and the toilet roll holder fell off the wall on our first night. Tea and coffee were provided and replaced each day, but we had to wash a filthy saucer the day we arrived. It is the only hotel we have ever been in where we had to make our own bed every day! The breakfasts were unimaginative, and there seemed to be a supply issue with items missing off the limited dog-eared menus Tables were not set properly on one morning, and the tables themselves were sticky. The carpet in the restaurant, hall and stairs was in dire need of a decent clean, and many of the chairs in the bar area were broken and uncomfortable. We found our final bill was wrong, with our first night's food and drink missing, which we did bring to their attention. We will not be going back!
