We stayed using Tesco vouchers. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable and we were provided with everything we required. However, the room was slightly shabby due to the scuffed and worn paintwork. An hour with a paintbrush would have made a big difference to the overall impression. Our room at the back of the hotel suffered from noise from an extractor fan. When we mentioned this we were immediately given the option of changing to another room, but on being assured it would be switched off at 10.30 p.m. and given that we were only staying for one more night we felt we could live with it. However it may be worth checking this out when booking. The breakfasts were very good and the staff were excellent and these are the main reasons for the "very good review". We had evening meals in the restaurant on a special offer of 3 courses for £20 when we booked, this was very good value but beware of expensive add ons (e.g. extra veg, coffee) and very expensive glasses of wine.
