Stayed one night recently. Owners appear very nice - friendly and chatty....however, the first thing we noticed was that the place smelled a little musty. Our bedrooms were tiny and some light fittings didn't work. The furnishings was very 1970s and extremely 'tired' looking. Remote control for the very elderly TV set was nowhere to be found. Corridors were narrow and the whole place appeared to have little or no sound proofing. The lift broke down very early on into our stay - a fact the female receptionist appeared to 'blame' on one of the other guests for 'pressing the button' so often they were unable to 'reset' the lift. The carpeted stairs up to the first floor looked like they hadn't been cleaned for quite a while - full of dirt and grime in the corners. I saw the snack machine in public area 'eat' money and refuse to dispense on several occasions during the evening and as the receptionist appeared to be forever 'disappearing' for a smoke outside, it was difficult to report the situation. The following day the hotel suffered a 'fault' (according to reception) in the hot water system, apparently resulting in no hot water for the entire building !! On the plus side the beds were comfy and clean, the towels were lovely ( didn't get to use them much though...thanks to no hot water ! ) and the breakfast was very acceptable - but that's the least you should expect from a hotel, isn't it ? We didn't complain at the time for two reasons, we didn't want to spoil the 'atmosphere' of the family function we were attending PLUS we knew we were there for only one night, so we 'put up' with it. I have to say though, I would not stay there again nor would I recommend the place and had we been booked to stay there longer - I'd have packed, left and gone somewhere else pronto.
