Having read reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect, but to be honest was pleasantly surprised. Yes some of the hotel is a bit dated, but the room we had, 306, was lovely, out of the way as right at the top, nice and clean with a separate dressing area and clean bathroom. There is a lot of work going on to improve things. Staff were all nice and breakfast was very good, the best scrambled eggs and salmon ive had in a long time! Lots of choice also. Paid £65, which for the height of season and included breakfast and parking I thought was excellent value. On a picky point, I would just say I think the carpets in the corridors could do with a good clean as smelt very musty, but im sure with the works going on this will probably be done. All in all I would say a very pleasant stay and would stay again
