We could not; believe the contrast between the photos of bedrooms on the websites & the reality of the nice, airy public areas/lounge & sweeping staircase, modern lounge/furniture and our grim cramped, red bedroom where we unfortunately had booked a 4 night 'romantic break'. I nearly cried when I realised what we'd got -for £72 per night- a shabby red carpeted (inc in bathroom), cramped, twin room with mis-matching floral bedspreads & ancient curtains- with the hem hanging unevenly. The awful blood-red paint on walls was flaked off in places, the room was very small. Only one ancient, stained brown velour chair (for two of us) & very narrow pine twin beds. Manky, tiny bathroom with mould round shower & dank red carpet on floor. UGH!
Saving graces: lovely breakfasts - in somewhat over-full breakfast room; clean towels changed daily, enthusiastic host/hostess.
But boy, were we glad to escape that horrible oppressive red bedroom.
