We stayed for 2 nights and booked the deluxe room i think it was called. One arrival first impressions were great. I was surprised it was on the main road, slightly set back but it wasn't a noisy road, so didn't see that as an issue. We were checked in and initially hadn't booked breakfast so decided to add it on for one morning and go from there... at £10 per person per night it wasn't cheap. The room its self was nice and clean. Wasn't 100% sure what i was expecting but it didn't really feel very superior! the bed was massive and the materas was fairly firm, i prefer a softer one but your not going to please everyone all of the time. The sheet was reasonably thin, but there was a blanket and heating in the room, but on the basis it was baking hot we we were happy there wasn't horrible stuffy duvets.
The bathroom was a good size, big enough to get washed and dried in if you wish and plenty of room to swing the proverbial cat in. The shower was powerful enough to remove the skin of your back let alone anything else. Towels were nice and fluffy, none of this thin rubbish you get in some places.
The breakfast was terrible, very overpriced for what it was, and this was probably the biggest bug bearer of the stay. There was cooked breaky, they had bacon, fried egg, scrambled egg, hash brown, beans, tomato, mushrooms, sausage and black pudding (very badly cooked) they also had a few cereals, fruits etc. Think there was a few slices of cheese and meats which classed as the continental breakfast. It wasn't the volume of the food, it was just not the best I've ever had. you could go help yourself to as much as you wanted, and they were bringing out plenty of fresh food. We wanted coffee with breakfast, and honestly thought we would be provided with a pot of coffee which was what the tea drinkers were given - unfortunately we got a cup of bitter coffee from a large urn/jug and then the guy ambled of with the coffee pot and we never saw it again. Would have much preferred a pot of fresh coffee on the table - especially when your paying £10 a head for it. We would have happily had a couple of cups and read the paper, but alas that wasn't going to happen. We only bothered with breakfast for one of the two nights and went elsewhere for the second morning.
We ate in the american style bar the 2nd evening, and after sampling the breakfast we didn't go in very enthusiastic, we only ate there as we couldn't be bothered to walk to the restaurant in the village. We were very surprised. Price wise your looking about £5 a head for starter, and they do a few sharing starters as well about £8-£20 and about £12-£20 for a main and about £5/£6 for a desert. We had the chicken fajitas and a mixed grill and a dessert each and it was very nice. Drinks weren't too expensive, about £6 for a round so not too bad. The waiter was very nice and friendly, and food was pipping hot. No-one rushed us with our meal, and they seemed happy enough to let us sit and unwind. They have a small tv in there playing sports, but its not too noisy that it interrupted the meal. A meal for 2 including drinks and desert was around £50 so not to expensive and the food was fantastic!. nice full belly's :) There was another restaurant in the hotel but we didn't bother with it.
They have free wifi throughout the hotel which is a nice touch, and we weren't woken by noise of people stomping through the hotel. There seemed to be a wedding going on somewhere in the hotel but we didn't hear a thing which was nice.
All in all it was a nice hotel. Friendly staff and nothing really seemed much of an issue. Wouldn't book a deluxe room again, would probably go with the standard room as i couldn't work out what was superior not what was deluxe about it.... i think it had a view, but i don't think i looked out of the window once. The hotel its self is very nice and quiet, no loud road noise, and plenty of parking. less
