The original building is very nice and cosy. This is the reception, restaurant and bar area. The furnishings are old, but in keeping with the building and even though the carpets are a bit worn they are also in keeping with the ambiance of this part of the Hotel. The rooms are outside the main building, a 2 story extension equivalent possibly to a holiday camp in the 70/80s.
Rooms are large and described as twin bedded, this means one double and one single. Windows need replacing and I would not want to stay here in winter as the buildings are chalet style, not much insulation. Bathroom is a tad small and needs some attention. Rusted pole supporting the sink for a start. Toilet roll holder almost impossible to reach unless you stand up.
When we arrived the receptionist was friendly and helpful, showing us how to reach our room and telling us meal times. We booked a table for diner. There is nowhere near for eating out.
Having bought a drink from the bar and ordered a main meal only with a bottle of wine and finishing our bar drinks, we made our way to the restaurant, we were stopped and asked where we were going. When we said that we wanted to go to the restaurant we were told that would not be good as our meal would not be ready yet. We understood that but wanted to sit at our table and drink some of our wine.
We were eventually "allowed" to sit at our table. The food was good, though the waitress did not know about clients tasting the wine before serving it and we waited a few minutes for a bread roll.
This Hotel has a captured market and the prices are high but the quality was vey tasty.
Breakfast - not very efficient. Didn't even bother to ask for Soya milk as I knew they would not have it. Decided to have poached eggs in one piece of toast, the eggs were hard, so what is the point of eating hard poached eggs?
Would we go back? Probably not.
If you have difficulty walking, then make sure you have a ground floor chalet room. I did not see many ramps, so wheelchair users may have a problem. less
