On arrival it looks lovely. The passage to our room was on ground floor and wasn't decorated. Owner had warned us and even took money off the room as she was worried what we would think. Honestly it wasn't the look that I was worrying about it was the smell of smoke that was coming from the private area beneath. This wasnt overpowering but was noticable. The room and bedding was clean and the bathroom was clean. There was a hole in the ceiling of the bathroom that my daughter was scared of and the shower was one of those old fashioned things that you put over the taps and made washing my hair quite a challenge as it kept popping off. Also the bathmat smelled a little of urine like maybe the previous occupant had had a little accident! Other than that the room was comfortable and we had a selection of refreshments and dvds. There was a flat screen tv and it was nicely decorated. My daughter had a big sofa bed to herself and there was enough room for my sons travel cot. Breakfast was lovely and the food is nice with plenty of choice. Tables were small and close together which made it a nightmare with the kids but the waitress and owner were lovely and understanding. My points to take notes of would be to get rid of the smokey smell it does drift upstairs!! And to allow a longer period of time over breakfast so there could be less tables in the room. We were up from six and wanted breakfast by seven. Everyone was cramming in at 8:30 which makes it a bit of a rush. Otherwise very comfortable and we would stay again.
