The easiest way to describe this hotel is "okay but rough around the edges".
We stayed there over the Easter Bank Hols 2014 on a 2nt DB&B basis and whilst the overall stay was ok, the hotel is definitely showing signs of aging. Room was good and seemed to have been renovated recently but the bed was somewhat uncomfortable. The sound insulation is not existent and everything everywhere can be heard quite easily.
Dinner ranged from mediocre on the 1st night to good on the second. Breakfast was good. The male guest toilet adjacent to the restaurant never seemed to have any running cold water in the taps or the flush, at least on the day of arrival.
There is newish looking steam and sauna facility and a covered swimming pool which all worked well. The entrance to these facilities and the arched building housing the pool, however, could do with a make over as they look very unappealing from the outside.
Staff were helpful and friendly albeit rather rushed off their feet and peak dinner and breakfast periods.
