We checked in fairly late one very chilly evening. The place is very rambling, with some external annexes. Our room was in one of these. On the second go, we managed to find a very clean but very cold room. When we rang reception, someone was there within minutes with a powerful electric heater. He'd also sorted the radiator quite quickly, and we were quite cosy after that.
Breakfast was a standard cooked English. Only small gripe there was the lack of unsmoked bacon, which didn't suit my husband. One morning the eggs arrived cooked wrongly, but a replacement arrived quickly.
We spent very little time at the hotel other than to sleep, but were quite pleased with it none the less. It seems the place is largely set up for conferences. But for our visit that was no problem at all.
