We were originally going to stay here last October for the jazz festival with my elderly parents but unfortunately my husband had to have a triple by pass. Dan very kindly transferred our deposit for us to stay in March for which I was really looking forward
Rooms very nice but onto the main road if you are a light sleeper take ear phones because traffic is going all through the night, my parents hardly slept! Baths very high so awkward getting in & out they had to have a strip wash both nights, not good for the elderly!!
We were served breakfast the first morning by the chef due to shortage of staff, very friendly & food lovely cooked. The only criticism was one of each cereal & jam/marmalade what if 2 of us wanted the same, I had to ask for extra marmalade.
The first day we didn't have any heating so I put the bath towels over the bath very crumpled up but they were not changed, I felt it was a bit of inconvenience asking the duty manager for another set of towels: she said there should be a sign saying save the environment please put your towels inside the bath if you want them changed, but no there wasn't but in any case I think the chambermaid should of used her initiative & I only put them there because we didn't have heating to dry them!!! I was happy to say we did have heating the following day
We had made arrangements to eat in Leeds on the Monday but have full intentions to eat @ the New Inn on the Tuesday night but unfortunately the chef had fallen down the steps after breakfast on Monday so they had to have apparently a third chef in to cook. The manager was very apologetic & said the only things he couldn't cook was the gammon & the mussels, I really didn't have any faith in the explanation so we decided to eat in the Riverhead (Excellent Choice)
Pub could be a thriving business but I wouldn't be surprised if it loses a lot of trade to the Riverhead
