I can sympathise with the recent reviewer ''Onlyliveonce'' who rated the value for money as poor. Our first stay was very good in every department really, the only downsides were those consistent with an old building which new owners are slowly getting to grips with.
But our second visit cost us £95 a night also, which was very poor value and the food had gone up in price also, making our visit expensive, as that reviewer had discovered.
It seems we had the same room, a large anonymous room, costing even out of peak season £190 for 2 nights, not good value at all. NO way!
I would take issue with the owner's reponse that the reviewer was being unrealistic in the 21st century as regards prices. I say the owner is being unrealistic in a RECESSION, when people are being forced to either stay at home, or seek good value for money. £95 a night for what we got was appalling value for money, quite frankly. At a time when everyone is drawing in the belts, these places need to offer top value not top prices, especially as the hotel is somewhat in need of updating.
No, maybe we got a good deal last time, because this time the value was very poor indeed.More
