Booked two rooms at short notice when returning back from the continent early. Arrived late around 10:15pm but met with friendly reception and shown to rooms. Although the rooms were adequate in size, they were dated and tired and the price was certainly not justified especially as breakfast was not included. Decided to have a drink in the bar and met the owner and some of the regulars. Hints of a 'North' v 'South' devide evident and became competitive during a few games of pool. North won but atmosphere changed and became uncomfortable at the end.
Breakfast was served by a lady that must have a diploma in misery and rudeness! Asked if I could have some sugar for the cereals and had the response "don't know if I have time". Breakfast was OK but nothing special and didn't warrant the price tag.
Wouldn't recommend this hotel at all.
Had a much better stay at the Collingbrook Hotel the following night with breakfast included and a third of the price cheaper.
