My husband was in the area with his work,and since we had stayed in this hotel last time we decided to come back. I asked for the same room as our last stay for our two nights stay,and was very pleased when my request was granted. The room was clean and met all our needs. The staff are all very friendly and eager to help. We decided to dine at the hotel,on our second night,but the food was just acceptable. I also feel the table and chairs are ready to be replaced. The seats have stains and the tables look tired. A nice tablecloth would hide a lot and give a warmer feel to the place. If the table were bistro style it would be different,but the tables gave a cafe "feel." The lounge area also lacks an atmosphere. Its more of a walk through area. Decided to stay for Sunday lunch before leaving. The meal was presented "school meal style". i.e. everything on the plate ready,and very small portions of veg. Again lacking atmosphere, which is such a pity.
A choice of different bread would be nice at breakfast.
