On arrival the place smelt and we heard the chef hacking his guts up. This isn't what you want to hear when your meant to be eating in a few hours time. When we got to the room we discovered it was filthy, dusty covered in mold and smelt. Me and my partner went downstairs and

Dear Rachel, Thanks for reviewing us and so sorry for your experience. I can assure you that it is not the normal experience - people have been loving our sauna & spa. As you mention there had unfortunately been a mix up with the booking and we were not expecting you, so the spa had not been adequately cleaned or had enough time to heat up. We do sincerely apologize for that. For your information there is a shower room just outside the sauna. We would love you to come back and we will ensure you have a good experience, maybe you could ring reception and ask for Sam or Lee and we will get you booked back in for free. Thanks Lee

"Ask for a front facing room as the back has no view."
"Make sure room is not above kitchen area."
"Bunkhouse is clean warm and a shower"
"The front rooms are in the oldest part of the hotel with more period character. The rooms further back were more modern and contemporary."
