Booked and got a very reasonable rate for a double ensuite. When we arrived early evening, restaurant was full of diners taking advantage of the early doors food offer, a good sign. Our room was lovely, big comfy bed, plenty of space, view over the valley (and car park) and a proper bathroom with bath. Everything worked, no complaints there.
Would have been nice to sit in the garden but it rained all the time!
We ate in the bar, bar service was good, good range of beers and wines. My crayfish lime salad was very nice. Unfortunately my wife ordered haddock and was put out to be served a tiny half fillet which had clearly been over cooked (thick, dark brown batter hardened like cement) or more probably, cooked once earlier and then deep fried again. For £10 we thought a whole fillet would have been the norm, and the chips were soggy. In short poorer quality than you'd get from a £4.99 chain pub menu. So we sent it back, and the waitress apologised, but then served up pretty much the same thing, probably the other half of the cooked fillet which had been refried.
That went back too and my wife chose a risotto which was fine, but by that time I had finished my meal and we really should have been offered some recompense. Next morning we didn't bother with the breakfast (£8 each or £5 for tea and toast!) but found a cafe on our way which did a full english for £5.
Good hotel let down by inconsistent catering on this occason.
