Went as a group of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids) for an overnight stay treat for the kids. Found the hotel extremely dissapointing. In rooms wallpaper was peeling off, tv remote not working and phone in bedroom would not make calls! Furniture totally outdated, no ventilation, AND windows were VERY unsutiable for family rooms as a child could EASILY fall out! Where to begin on restaurant...........dark, gloomy,musty, unhygenic, unfriendly and unhelpful staff. The staff very rude, cleaning off table and banging ware into a basin while guests were trying to enjoy their meal. Kids soft drink bottles were chipped on top AND on bottom, when asked to change staff were very rude. Drink prices were very expensive and very little variety of drinks. And now onto breakfast, staff made no attempt to clean off vacant tables and was hard to get their attention. When breakfast eventually came it consisted of 1 sausage, 1 rasher, 1piece of white pudding. SO all in all will not EVERY return to this hotel
