Spent one Saturday night here for partner's birthday (Oct '11). Changed first room as we specifically chose this hotel for the whirlpool bath and first room did not have one. The next room was tired, had cobwebs and spiders in the shower! Sadly the whirlpool didn't work either. Staff did try to fix it but sadly could not. We did get a reduction on the final bill but very disappointed and envious when the upstairs room ran theirs!!!
Very noisy rooms, could hear voices, televisions, and snoring! Perhaps the new management should invest in some soundproofing when they revamp the bathrooms?
We were very aware that the hotel appeared to be understaffed. The reception area and bar were never manned and we watched customers trying to find members of staff for service.
Saying that, the hotel has a nice friendly, albeit, tired atmosphere, lovely grounds and is very relaxing.
I wish the new hoteliers all the best and hope that they bring the hotel up to a standard that makes them proud.
