For the price of £120 per night it was very basic. We had room 1 which I believe is considered the best room. When my wife used the bathroom the door handle came off in her hand. When I used the shower water was leaking from within the unit and running down the wall. The bathroom was very poorly laid out and the shaving light wasn't above the mirror. For the price and being rated at 4 stars I would have expected a biscuit to have with my tea. On the plus side the three girls that worked behind the Bar, waited on table and cleaned the rooms were very helpful and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. When I mentioned the problem with the room next morning we were moved to room 3 which was smaller, had a better laid out bathroom but the shaving light here didn't work. I didn't enjoy the breakfasts. They made there own sausages (pork and beef I think) and black pudding. I normally enjoy both but they were awful so we didn't have a full English on the second morning. Unfortunately there was different staff on the Sunday morning and where there had been fruit and yogurt put out Saturday there was none on Sunday so the breakfast was rather sparse. The evening meals were also disappointing and I felt their ambition was not matched by their capability. The rooms were clean but only worth about £75 per night and I would have expected a better breakfast even at that price.
