We booked a DB&B rate and the dinner first night was very poor - stone cold in fact and not properly cooked. Told waitress who did absolutely nothing. Asked at reception to change for B&B rate for next day as dinner was so poor but got no help and manager never got back to us with an answer. Breakfast variable - sausages had a casing of leather and coffee watery and tasteless. Room OK - bathroom could be cleaner mould on grouting in shower. Bed was very hard and uncomfortable. Bar expensive and no English beer - only lager. Wine expensive £9 for 2 small glasses. Although lounge area was virtually empty were told we could not sit by window because it was for dining only and we wanted afternoon coffee (it was 4.00 pm) Five minutes later another couple sat there and had tea! Five minutes after that another couple told they also could not sit by window. Staff seemed quite confused. For the price much better places to be found.
