We expected parking to be an issue so there was no suprise that we had to park away from the hotel. We were in the annexe and 2 of us had double rooms. The rooms are small. If there were 2 of you in one of these rooms, you would be very cramped, but it was clean and there was plenty of tea and coffee making supplies. First impressions were that the bathroom was in a cupboard - it was really but it was actually OK as we were staying as singles in each room. Again 2 of you would be very cramped. TV was on the windowsill so you couldn't pull the curtains if you wanted to watch it. 2 of us were happy with our rooms but again as singles. One of us had a family room and felt it was very shabby and dated and wouldn't want to stay there again. We only ate breakfast in the hotel mainly because when we arrived early evening, the way to the rooms in the annexe is through the dining room and the 3 of us had to walk past a couple trying to eat. There was no atmosphere in there and it all looked a bit austere. (Had a lovely meal in Cobblestones restaurant across the road). However, we did enjoy our breakfast in the hotel. There was plenty of it and it was cooked really well with pleasant service. The 3 stars is a bit misleading because I don't think that applies to the annexe only to the main hotel allthough I think this was pointed out to us when I booked it.
