The hotel is in a fabulous scenic location, but that's about as far as it goes. The decor is TIRED, old, barely maintained and the rooms have the feeling of a 1970's Travelodge.
Decent amount of parking, but it ends there.
Tired, outdated bathrooms, worn mattresses, tired furnishings.
Then there is their "premiere" restaurant Neptunes. Avoid, eat in the bar, it looks like someone's den in 1972 and is as welcoming as a NHS waiting room.
I am so disappointed to write this as given the year we're in, it wouldn't break their back to put in new carpets, repaint, new furnishings and really have an amazing place.
We won't be back.
