Great views, nice staff (except the chambermaid), and a swimming pool. That's about as much as I can say that is nice. Spent 3 days there and to be frank it felt like a total rip off. Didn't mind the elderly clientele, but did mind that although clean our room needed decorating. The bathroom was tiny and there were no toiletries other than a 10p size piece of soap. Only 3 electrical plugs in the room, not exactly a lot in this day and age. Tooth mugs were flimsy plastic glasses and the courtesy tea and coffee comprised unwrapped tea bags and a generic sachet with coffee granules in it.
If this doesn't sound too bad it is at the price we paid, could have stayed for three nights in a 4 star hotel locally for less money.
Our stay included breakfast- I think we should have asked for a refund- my husband had the vegetarian option- 15 minutes to cook 1 quorn sausage, half a tomato, 1 fried egg, and half a slice of fried bread, not exactly kingly fare. No pots of coffee available, instead it came out of a vacuum flask. It was all just stuck in some sort of 'this is the way we do it' and its not very good.
