Firstly we stayed for 2 nights at a cost of £180 !! Yes a tad expensive. We thought it looked nice from a distance. The room was on the top floor of what must have been the servants quarters in the 19th century.
The room on the whole was clean and fresh , however there was a bit of dust in places. The main dissapointment was that the windows were rotting and to cure this pieces of wet toilet paper had been inserted into the rotted portions of the window!!!
The windows were also full of bird excrement which somewhat misled our view.
The heating was on in most of the hotel so we were absolutely sweltering. At this point upon opening one of the windows the latch fell off in my hand!!! LOL
Breakfasts!!! £15 for 2 not bad we thought! The portions are diabolical . Literally 1 small tablespoon of beans!!! a rasher of bacon, 1 sausage, 1 egg, half a fried tomato and a burnt hashed brown! The coffee was so strong it made me rush to the toilet after ten minutes of drinking it.
Incidentally the staff at the breakfast are very helpful but tend to run around like headless chickens! They are in serious need of some good management in the dining room. The manageress in the dining hall looked like she had snorted a line of cocaine she was that hyper!!!
Avoid this place its overpriced, full of old doddering people and as one reviewer rightly points out it smells like a urine infested nursing home!
