We'd been here before and had a lovely time which is why we chose it again. However since our last stay it has been taken over and had lots of new work done.
We stayed in a similar room to the one before so weren't surprised by the slightly tired interior - in fact, it added to the charm. But this time it was a little dirtier. In fact, so much so that when I pulled back the duvet when I got into bed there was a significant hair ball between the sheets. This added to the incredibly uncomfortable nights sleep I had.
The restaurant lacks atmosphere, the waiting staff slow (nothing to do with the large party they had in, just down to general fluffiness) and the food very poor quality. In fact, largely inedible in the case of our breakfast. There was no orange juice, the coffee was watery, the cups dirty and condiments absent (even after requesting them).
I left tired, hungry and feeling as though we'd wasted the one night away from the children we've had.
To be fair to the hotel they took money off our room and our meal (£30 & £20) however nothing really makes up for a clump of someone else's hair in your bed. less
