On arrival for 2 nights we wondered what we had let ourselves in for! At 6.00 pm on a Wednesday the bar/restaurant was buzzing and it was not clear really where to check in. However the first of many very helpfull staff spotted us with our bags and came to our rescue. The stairs up to the rooms needs serious attention both structurally and decoratively. They do a nice line in damp on the staircase wall! The public arreas need a makeover. By this time we were worried.
However, our room was lovely, clean and modernised. There were some worrying pointers to potential discomfort - earplugs supplied and an airconditioning unit on the wall.....didn't need to worry; neither of these were required. On coming down to the bar for a meal, it was still buzzing but with really lovely people and very helpfully staff. The food is homely but good. Curry night (Wed) was superb - a delicious chicken jalfrese and an excellent pint of beer for £4.95!!! Thursday evening (free bottle of wine night) was equally excellent.
Breakfast was superb. The availbilty of being able to leave the car and get the bus into the centre was a real bonus.
Overall we had a really enjoyable stay with good food, good service and met some lovely, friendly people. Just goes to show....don't judge a book by its cover.More
