We booked one night on a Livingsocial package which included a two-course dinner+wine and breakfast. We only paid £76 so it was value for money, normally we were told it is £115.00.
Room 14 was clean but certainly needing some refurbishment. There was no valance on the bed, no cushions either, very plain and not at all like other 4* hotels we have stayed it. The tv looked dated and there was no remote control. Like in other reviews the central heating was quite noisy but despite this the room was warm and the bathroom was clean and adequate.
The meals were served in the conservatory. Unfortunately the radiators weren't on so it was a little on the cold side, also a few cobwebs on the light fittings.
However, the food was presented well and tasted good. The staff are very polite and friendly and they went out their way to make sure everything was okay. However, upon checking out (Saturday, 8th March) the Receptionist seemed a little sharp, she didn't ask if we had enjoyed our stay and if there were any issues. It just seemed that she wanted to check us out and that was it, probably a little more training is required on customer service!
