The hotel wasn't great. Room was small but adequate, could hear people very clearly in the other rooms and we were the room at the top. shower cubicle was tiny with water running scalding to freezing without changing the settings! The bed was one of those ones that splits in half in the middle width ways and the two sections are normally kept together with metal hook things. There was one missing so the bed came apart in the middle! Mattress was uncomfortable. Room was clean but very dated. Clean bedding and towels, room was warm. Was shown around upon checking in after the owner helped my boyfriend find a place to park the van on the roadside (the car park only accommodates a few cars) We got ready for our night out and the owner called us a taxi. I think check out was 10.00am which I think is far too early - it's normally around 11.00. Anyway we came in very late (we were given a key to come in when we wanted to) I slept through my 09.30 alarm and didn't get up until 10.30am. I was getting ready and heard the owner bray on the bedroom door and shouted ''check out was ages ago hurry up!!!'' I shouted back that we were nearly ready. I didn't like that he didn't attempt to speak to us civilised first rather than shouting like that. We finally made it downstairs at 11.00. I apologised to the lady for leaving the room late and explained we had got back around 5am. She took one look at the state of me and said you can't leave yet I'll make you a tea go make yourself comfy in the lounge. She very kindly brought a pot of tea and a pot of coffee free of charge to try and sort us out before we left. She was a very kind lady and I was very grateful for her hospitality. We took our time in the lounge and left just before 12.00. Pleasant enough stay for the cost but I think I would have rather spent an extra tenner on a much nicer hotel!
