Having read some of the comments prior to arriving this weekend (5th Oct) we were not sure what to expect. It was a very busy weekend due to the Cycling even being held and as we booked very late our choice was somewhat limited.
We were welcomed at reception by a very nice young lady who was polite and efficient. Our room was on the ground floor with a patio door onto the garden terrace. Yes there were areas that really needed some redecoration but our room was clean, spacious, the bed was comfortable and it was really nice to have the door open as the weather was great.
We went out for dinner but returned to the hotel to find there was entertainment on in the bar with a lot of people in there having a great time, we had a drink in there and really enjoyed the entertainment.
Slept well, our package was for a Continental Breakfast, it was a little disorganised but there was a reasonable choice, it would have been nice to have some cold meats and cheese but in essence, it was fine.
I am sure once the new owners get to grips with the decor and maintenance of the hotel it will make a huge difference. In a lovely position with a glorious garden. Very polite staff too
