Room was spacious but very dated. Bed was so uncomfortable I just couldn't sleep.
Atmosphere was dead and this is due to the over priced drinks 1 baileys and a double jamesons £18. Come on that's greed. We were in bed by 1045, an hour later than anyone else!
The meal was lovely but incurred extra costs that weren't explained until checkout. Two course dinner with cheese at the end, bottle of wine and three drinks each plus £69 b&b ended costing £210 for one night.
The quality of the individual breakfast product was good but for £24 for two you expect more than 1 sausage, 1 bacon, 1 egg and some scabby mushrooms each. It is just not value for money and compares to far better establishment prices which have a great atmosphere.
We have stayed in many different weekend break hotels and if the food wasn't to the standard it was we would have walked out that evening.
We were bitterly disappointed in this place and see no reason why you would want to stay here for a weekend away if your under 70
We thought from the recent reviews compared to ones a few years ago the standards may have lifted but this is not the case the bar and lounge are very small bit due to the ridiculous drinks prices they were always empty apart from cream tea time which was included.
