We stayed at the hotel through a wowcher offer, just for a little trip away from home. After seeing the bad reviews, but taking into account the managers responses we thought it was still going to be worth a try - and it was!
Lovely gentleman greeted us upon arrival, advised on where we could eat and what we could do with our free evening. He even offered to help with our bags!
The room was clean with a lovely view over the garden and decent bathroom. It was a bit noisy - creaky floorboards and noisy neighbours - but nothing that couldn't be ignored.
In the morning, breakfast was served by the same gentleman, who seemed genuinely interested in how we were finding our stay and brought us a lovely breakfast. He signed us out and we left feeling very well looked after and happy with the stay.
With regards to previous reviews mentioning the property being "tired", I would suggest the "homely" and though there is room for improvement decor-wise, I can honestly say I hardly noticed as it was far outshone by the welcoming and friendly staff.
