I arrived with my family in anticipation of a stay in a great hotel. We had requested a suite, as in the past, suites have always delivered that "something special" to a break. (Opting for this over the Premier Inn down the road).
On arrival, the young receptionist was blunt, after eventually prizing herself away from the phone.
We were given vague directions to our room and sent on our way.
The hotel itself, is a great venue. I can see the pull for wedding receptions and parties.
However, the room itself is the old adage of mutton and lamb.
The room was clean, but a little run down.
The four poster bed was more of an annoyance than a feature.
Admittedly there were 2 TVs, but they only receive 7 channels of the hundreds available in the UK today.
The bathroom was clean, but old.
And the tea/coffee facility was very limited.
After an uncomfortable nights sleep for myself (everyone else slept soundly) we headed to breakfast, and it was as though I had woken up ion a completely different hotel.
The service was exemplary, the array of food was stupendous, and, what appeared to be a locally produced cooked breakfast was delivered to my table, hot and in a timely manner. This was divine.
On checking out, the receptionist was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable of the local area.
What a shame it's the first impressions that count.
3.5 out of 5 would be my overall rating. Good, not very good.
