Stayed there in June 2013.Staff very friendly and helpfull and make the people staying very welcome.It caters very we'll for people with all types of disabilities but as a carer the hotel fell short of the standered of any hotel I have been in before.Rooms could do with a total refurb to bring them up to a modern standard.Bathroom doors don't shut shower tiles cracked and need of grouting.One coat hanger in the home made wardrobe that looks as if it was put up 20 years ago.There was no valve on the radiator to turn it on either.
That was just my room another carers room that was staying at the same time was similar so don't think it is a one off.
The entertainment was standered with a mixture of singers and acts and bingo.
The food also fell short of what I would expect.Although the staff were very friendly and will blend down any food that is required there is not a great selection of foods available.For pudding it was advertised as a selection of sweets for desert.This turned out as rice pudding and fruit.Another night it was cake and custard.
All in all it caters very well for people with disabilities and the hotel was full when we were there so must be making a good profit.So come on management spend some of it modernising the rooms and give a wider selection of foods.
