This is a very good hotel, in a pleasant location, and manned by mainly very pleasant and helpful staff. I attended with a coach party and my every need was catered for. In fact one evening I was relaxing alone before retiring for the night and one member of staff came to see if I was alright. The breakfasts were very good and were well cooked.
My only complaint is with evening chef. On the first evening it took 35 minutes from placing out order until our starter arrived. On the second evening, even though we were asked to go in thirty minutes earlier it took forty minutes for our starters to arrive, I found the meat on all my four main courses to be under cooked and left most of it. On one evening I ordered White Bait for my starter and have to say it was the worst I have ever tasted in my life.
Sorry to say this one person let down a very good hotel.
