We took my 98 year old mother for 3 nights away in this hotel. Lovely Edwardian building & the bedrooms were huge with settees. Although a little outdated the rooms were clean. Dinner was not good. A very limited menu, only 1 fish and 1 vegetarian option with3 meat options and my mother only eats fish and chicken. Her fish was so overlooked we used all the pats of butter to give it some moisture:my pork chop was so dry it was up hard to cut though my husbands lamb rack was just ok. Dinner on the 2nd night was as bad: my mother and I had the veggie option of a mushroom risotto which should have been lovely but was so stodgy even the waiter said it looked awful and in fact refunded our 2 meals. Each night it was the same menu with the sauce changed. Parking is slightly difficult but we always found a space, if not in front, round the back of the hotel.
One or two staff were a little surly but on the whole helped when something went wrong and we were delighted to find blankets which we prefer. I had checked on this before leaving home.
