This hotel is not much to look at but we got an itson deal so we gave it a go, room was a family room with a bed, pull out couch and chair, clean but tired and dated looking, a second door led out to a sloped lawn, but it seemed that most people used it for a cigarette break place, carpet was wet at this doorway, bathroom was spacious and well lit.
Food was overpriced and the selection was poor, dining rooms were quite dull and cold looking, overall experience was ok but nothing to rush back for, in fact we will not be back. Did not get my rose petals or chocolates in the room which were in the deal. I did complain but still got nothing, wine was pricey at £7.40 for a glass.
A positive point was that staff were friendly and helpful.
