Nothing much has changed in 3 years since our last stay here, the floors still creak 24/7 the rooms are of a good size as is the en suite bathroom and the beds were reasonably comfortable but everything is ill thought out and rather shabby. Nice touches with dressing gowns, an iron and ironing board and the wifi worked ok.
The owner? still hovers around but says nothing, (reminds me of a character from the Munsters) and does nothing to help or assist his staff who are very thin on the ground poor things.
The bar is open but often not staffed and closes at 11.00 regardless that there were several residents enjoying a drink and owner sat behind the partition making sure no-one helped themselves to a drink!
The dining room is closed in the evening, the reason given was that it had been laid up for breakfast! I don't know about anyone else but when I book into a nice hotel and want an evening meal I expect to eat it in nice surroundings from a well laid table not on a grubby table in a bar full of people drinking.Pub grub to me is for lunch not an evening meal.We ordered our meal regardless and the main part of it arrived, no cutlery, and no potatoes or veg which arrived a good 5 to 10 minutes after which resulted in a luke warm Haddock and peas /Scampi. We didn't bother with dessert!
We had booked room only and went to the Secret Garden Cafe for a wonderful breakfast for £9 for the 2 of us.
Second night we and 8 others in our party went out to eat and had a wonderful meal at the Marco Polo Italian restaurant in the main High Street.
I would go back as the hotel is ideally situated but it is a pity that it is not run well or welcoming from the management. The staff deserve a medal. less
