I stayed here with my new husband on the first night of our honeymoon until our cottage nearby was ready, so only 1 night. On arrival the hotel looked closed. No doors or windows open, and I honestly thought the place was shut. We rang the bell and after a time a man came and let us in and said he hoped we a booking. We said yes, and he showed us to our room. He told us our room key also operated the front door (a Yale lock), so I wondered to my husband if all the room keys opened the same lock on the front door, would all the keys open all the rooms? I didn't really think that was great security. The room was very large, and the bed comfortable with a lovely view of the hillside opposite. The bathroom was quite big also, with a seperate shower and bath. The owners were friendly enough but I found the way the man paced up and down the bar whilst we were eating somewhat uncomfortable.
Although some of the rooms were ok, I found mostly the hotel to be very tired, and worn out, and nothing that a lick of paint and a new carpet wouldn't fix. The food was mediocre, and I never like to hear the sound of a microwave pinging from the kitchen of somewhere I am eating, which is frequently what I heard. A different room for breakfast in the morning, which was fine apart from the big stack of tables and chairs in the corner. Breakfast itself was good. All in all, I was somewhat disappointed after having read different reviews.
