On entry the hotel is lovely. Beautiful drive up to the entrance. The reception is old fashioned but tastefully decorated. We were part of a bus tour so had to wait ages to check in even although there were 3 other people working on the reception. The twin room we had was very smell and absolutely roasting hot with 2 tiny windows and no air conditioning. This led to a dreadful sleep for both of us. The bathroom was a decent enough size but the shower was useless. Dinner is open sitting from either half 5 or 6 and I was surprised by now nice it is. The restaurant itself is lovely and clean feeling. Staff are good at clearing your dirty plates although I had to go to bar to order drinks. Food was delicious and ranged from soup and salad to start to roast beef and fish pie for mains. There was also a nice selection of desserts. Buffet style so you could help yourself. Breakfast was same set up and you could eat as much porridge, toast, fruit and fried stuff as you like. Some of the stuff was over cooked but overall is was fine. Checked out and the young lad at the reception didn't even crack a smile. I think if you get a reasonable deal for dinner bed and breakfast give it a try but I wouldn't pay much.
