A lovely hotel spoilt by a few details. We had a suite (Room 14) consisting of a bedroom, sitting room, lobby with wardrobe, and bathroom. The bed was comfortable, as were the setees and chairs in the sitting room (one was a settee-bed, ideal for families). Decor was clean and tidy and the cleaning well attended to. Bedside tables were actually rattan-topped stools which meant that stopping a glass of water getting in the radio was interesting.
Now, the oddities. Soap only provided (at £70 one expects at least shampoo) but there was nowhere to put it in the shower! Friend staying there had the same problem so perched it on top of the shower power supply, only to find half-used bars from previous users! Only one sachet chocolate drink provided in a double room. And the dreaded UHT milk! A supposed 'continental' breakfast was included but actually consisted of ceral, tinned garpefruit or package orange juice, yoghurt, toast and jam. No marmalade! Amazingly, after I had asked for it on the first day there was still none on the second, yet this hotel is yards from the shops. No rolls or croissants. Good coffee though. There was a cooked breakfast for GPB 5.00 extra with the standard selection of bacon, sausage etc. but no other choice, only deletions from the full monty.
Tried to eat there in the evening but no tables, which presumably means that the locals must find it OK for evening meals. There is a superb resteraunt nearby though.
Would we go again? Probably, but hope they will pay attention to these details - they make all the difference.
