Arrived a little early, but welcomed by a friendly receptionist who made us feel welcome and re-arranged our room so we could freshen up straight away. Position of hotel was in pleasant surroundings adjacent to a golf club. Car parking for the hotel guests only was near reception.
Room on the first floor was modern, clean and fresh. Rather low bed was comfortable though could hear passing people in corridor and going down the stairs at night. One of the rooms on the floor was being used as an office for the hotel.
Large bathroom with bath as well as integral shower. A rail or hook for the bath towel would have been useful adjacent to the bath/shower, as the towels were on a radiator next to the wash basin on the opposite side of the large bathroom. Usual basic accoutrements were supplied.
Free Wi-Fi had good connectivity in the room. No room lock box, though this was available at reception. Tea/Coffee making facilities available in the room, with fresh milk if requested. No fridge.
A covered walkway to reception/breakfast from accommodation block would be useful when raining.
Excellent choice for breakfast, with fruit, yoghurt and cereals, followed by a comprehensive cooked breakfast selection including legendary Black Pudding.
Had a bar meal one evening, which was good if slightly overpriced, though the room was rather soulless.
If in the area would stay here again. less
