Whilst on business I stayed here with an ailing partner (Chewsy) who struggled to stay warm due to the snow. The bar was cold and Chewsy couldn't get warm due to her illness (sore tummy). To be fair to the hotel they saw her shaking and provided a portable radiator in order to make her more comfortable which helped so we stayed for two drinks. They also gave her free pretzels. After the drink Chewsy had to find her way around a maize of corridors to her room which wasn't as easy to find as we thought it would be and because the building was cold Chewsy felt cold also. This was the same vice versa finding the bar again. We were encouraged to book a table for tea even though there was only 5 couples in the massive dining room. Tea was fine but when we went for another quick drink in the bar there was no bar man so we didn't bother (could have done with some more free pretzels because there wasn't a lot of tea for the price). The corridors were a little noisy at sleep time and my bed was too small but there was plenty of space in the car park. Breakfast was fine but wasn't very big but by this time Chewsy was feeling better so it didn't matter.
