The staff were efficient and friendly both in the dining room and at reception.I found the lounge and bar comfortable and "homely". I had a single room which could have done with a coat of paint but was adequate in size. My only disappointment was the en-suite. It was so small I sat on the toilet and my knees went under the sink. There was a very high step up into the shower and a sign warning people to be careful as the step was so high. There was nothing to hold on to and I felt very nervous getting in and out of the shower. A hotel I have stayed in previously had a shower with this problem and had put up grab rails which made it much safer.
