Large carpark but could do with a sign pointing out which building is the actual hotel. Most hotel guests we saw arriving ,like us, were going straight to the building with 'Main Entrance' above the door which was actually the pub. Some smokers outside directed us across the carpark to the hotel building.
Receptionist gave us the keys to the room of another member of our party who was yet to arrive, at first. Had to give that back and be given ours. Then just vague directions to our room, resulting in some locals in the bar having to stop us walking into the kitchens with our cases! Went down for drinks and sat in the reception area whilst waiting for our table in the dining room. The male receptionist didn't even look at us , just kept staring into space.
Only stairs and no lift, but there are some ground floor rooms as well. So worth requesting one of those if you think you would struggle with the stairs, as not asked if you would like help with cases.
Clean enough and decent size rooms. Shower floor very slippy and stained rubber bath mat provided in cupboard under sink didn't stick, so would have been even more dangerous. Toilet seat kept slipping to the side....need to invest in slightly better quality ones!
Nicely stocked tea tray. No ironing facilities in room. A safe in the wardrobe but didn't use that. Comfy bed and nice big pillows .A bit of thought could have gone into where the mirror above the dressing table was situated. Had to stand whilst doing my hair as the mirror was too high up to see into when sitting on the chair.
Meal in the hotel dining room was very nice when it eventually arrived after about an hours wait. Didn't come and ask us if we wanted any more drinks during that long wait .Main course was then served seconds after the first course dishes were taken away.
Not a large choice of drinks in the hotel bar, so we went across to the pub bar for the last few drinks.
Breakfast self service and a few items like my nice big bowl of creamy porridge brought on request.
Comfortable enough hotel, but not one that I would rush to re-book . less
