This was a bargain voucher break from one of the many voucher sites out there, and we have ate here before and have never been disappointed so were thoroughly looking forward to our stay, on arrival we were checked in and directed to our room, being told that the food finished at 1930hrs and only in the bar, shame as we were looking forward to the complimentary bottle of wine with the meal in the restaurant. Even so the meal was okay and the bar was clean and tidy, very quiet but that would be expected on a sunday afternoon...
The room, we were directly at the top of the stairs and bemused by it really, very quirky and individual but also very tired and not exceptionally clean, the travel kettle took ages to boil and the bathroom was like a prison cell, no windows, poor lighting and no extraction so not great, the bed was possibly the most uncomfortable we have attempted to sleep in, I say attempted as we were both shattered in the morning, breakfast was nice though and set us up nicely for the day,
We certainly wouldn't recommend this place to any of our friends, not to stay for the night anyway!!
