We stayed Friday and Saturday night and luckily the weather was wonderful. The hotel is old, and it's nice to see that they haven't modernised everything. I had read a few reviews though and so I called the hotel to request a refurbished room. The room was lovely, we ended up in an 'accessible' room and it had a walk in shower/wet room, it was spacious and uncluttered. Only complaint I'd have about our room was the very creaky floor which meant I woke my partner up when I went to the loo in the night. Can't really justify that as a complaint though as the hotel is so old! The car park was handy, but at £23 per night to park it's a cost we hadn't planned for. The breakfast was very good, not sure why people have complained. We stay away extensively and the breakfast here is certainly comparable. We did arrive for breakfast at 10am on Saturday morning and there wasn't a huge amount left, no eggs in particular. We didn't ask but I'm sure they would have brought us some. The heated dishes they serve from could do with being replaced for some that keep the food hotter (I run a food service equipment manufacturer so am probably just being fussy here). Staff very friendly and the Reservations Manager in particular was very helpful when I'd discovered an error in my booking. Would definitely recommend, just make sure you know what to expect room wise.
