Don't get carried away - this has the Best Western tag but according to the signs at reception it is privately owned.
No lift for the three days I was there.
Given a key on arrival - up to first floor via stairs, no offer of help with luggage - to find key didn't work, back to reception to be given an entry card. I was told that it wouldn't work after the first night so I had to get it reloaded second day.
Bar food on first night good - had to have it delivered to my room on my last night as "there is a function in the bar.”
Breakfast was an experience - bulk cooked food so if you go down late, as I did on first two days, it is barely warm.
And even though breakfast is served til 9.30 (later on Saturday) the breakfast staff appeared far from happy that I had left it so late. It was obviously a problem for them - on the last day I was much earlier as I needed to get on the road - and the lady made a comment about being early. The food wasn't much different on that day, it’s the usual scenario of people thinking that by providing hot plates it will make warm food hot!! It doesn't!!
The room wasn't made up on one day - the maid tried to come in whilst i was in shower at 9, far too early. Went away, when I left the room I put the "make up my room" sign but it never happened.
Bed was comfortable, and a decent size as was bathroom.
The shower was a mixer attached to the taps – no thermostat control and extremely difficult to get the temperature right, just a small turn of the hot brings out scalding water.
Fairly clean BUT – take a look at the photos from the bathroom, obviously whoever decorated this must have got fed up before the job was finished and bodged it.
I think this place has potential but is clearly in desperate need of management. less
