Spent 2 nights with wife and her siblings in a family gathering.
Couldn't get a space in the hotel car park on night 1, and with a wedding party in the hotel on day 2, I had to park nearby in Marygate at £11 for maximum stay.
We agreed that the hotel lounge was "tired but comfortable" after arguing about the definition of "shabby chic".
Dinner on night 1 was fine ; we were seated in an exclusive alcove. On night 2 we had to go downstairs, where we had the end bay to ourselves. Here, my main course came devoid of some of the items mentioned on the menu : must have been a shortage, I assume. I had to assume, because nobody explained what had transpired.
Our breakfasts were a bit of a mish-mash ; orders were not fulfilled, and the breakfast chef had a bit of a problem on day 2. Service was bit on the slow side.
Check-out was interesting ; a queue of people complaining about various things, while our bills needed quite a bit of sorting-out.
The hotel is well-placed for the town centre which is only a few minutes away on foot, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, but the car park is too small and the rooms are comfortable without being above average, with bathrooms which are up for renovation, and why do we persist with these tiny bottles of shampoo etc ?
