Although it seems some work has recently been done in the rooms some details need attention like untidy bathroom grouting and filling around doors. The breakfast was very nice, rooms very cold on the second morning of our stay. Think the hotel is overpriced.

Staff lovely, breakfast excellent, room brilliant (reserve number 5 or 6 as they have been re done recently and are large). Marred by the price at £95pn....I presume it was inflated because it was the firework display, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again at £60pn THERE IS NO LIFT!
