The hotel is a very attractive building, with plenty of sitting areas where you can spend time chatting with friends, drinking tea etc. The reception desk is manned 24 hours a day, and the staff were outstanding in terms of helpfulness. The bedroom was warm, the bed comfortable, and the en-suite sparklingly clean.
One or two things were variable - in three days the towels and shower requisites were replaced randomly - I did not get a full set of everything on two of the days. The food, while generally good, varied at times. One evening I had plaice, which was cooked to perfection, but the next I had lamb, which I had assumed would be sliced, but which was in rather hard lumps, and cooked, it seemed, in wine, which I was not expecting, and was not to my taste. The breakfast was generally very good, with a wide range of hot and cold items. Strangely, on my last morning, the scrambled egg was very over-salted and not nearly as delicious as it had been on the other two days. I was pleased that the car-parking was free, and that there was free wi-fi. There is a bus-stop near the hotel, with buses into town (a short ride). Overall, it was a very pleasant stay, and I would certainly return. less
