Firstly, don't let it's appearance put you off. The Carriages restaurant has a more traditional style to it, whislt the hotel and rooms look a little more modern almost Chalet style.
The receptionist was very welcoming and friendly. Check in was swift, painless and efficient. A short walk to my room and hey presto. Bathroom was small but had all the toiletries needed( they do also sell additional items should you have forgotten anything)with a good sized bath and over the bath shower, finished off with a heated towel rail( a little favourite of mine).
The room was a good size and double bed very comfortable. Nice sized TV with the selection of Free to air Digital channels. Free wifi( via BT Openzone.) with a good speed connection.
Tea/coffee was supplied with a tea pot as well. Not seen one of them in a room for a while but it is was a nice touch..saves having to re brew every thirty seconds :)
Decor in the room was pastels/cream. Well turned out, tidy and clean. A well lit desk area is included and would suit the business trip individual very well.
Wardrobe was a little small, but that is the only thing I can complain about.
Breakfast was plentiful and served with a nice smile. Hot and Cold on offer so you cna pretty much sort yourself out.
I didn't eat an evening meal in the restaurant but others tell me the food is of a nice quality. There is a fairly good list of Room Service items available if you wish, ( all come with a 20% surchage - that's std these days).
All in all, a nicely appointed hotel that suits a variety of travellers. I'm not 100% convinced its ideal for families but certainly for business or couples looking to explore the area it is great.
At £66 per room b&B..its a bargain.
