“Unkempt and outdated!”
Reviewed 27 July 2009

If we had not been travelling on a motorbike all day we would definately not have stayed here.
The outside areas were overgrown and generaly unkempt. The bar area was ok but corridor to rooms upstairs smelt musty.
Our room, only had a net curtain, when we pulled it back to look out there was black mouldy wallpaper peeling off the wall. The Shower room had cracked broken tiles that were black with mould. The bed gave a whole new meaning to pocket sprung!
There were no customers apart from ourselves but the staff were pleasant, we declined to have an evening meal but did risk breakfast which was ok.
There was a conservatory which according to the website was used for functions but the windows were so dirty we could not see inside. It was sad to see which was probably once a lovely old home left to fall into such a state, this hotel needs serious attention to bring it up to it's former glory.
We booked after looking at the hotel website.
It was not easy to find and was not in a particularly nice area although the view from our room was overlooking the hills.

Stayed June 2009, travelled as a couple
