I stayed at this hotel about 20 years ago and it was quite good. Unfortunately I don't think any refurbishment work has been carried out ever since. The room we stayed in was of very poor quality. Floorboards creaked, bath a disgrace, shower non adjustable, secondary double glazing, exterior wooden window completely rotten, TV on a stand on the floor so that you could only view if propped up by several pillows, bed mattress needed replacing. We were only there for one night as we were going to a family party so we put up with it. However, I definitely would not return. On a positive note I would say that all the staff were helpful and the breakfast was good but I felt sorry for the staff having to work in such a dump. I can imagine they have to continually bear the brunt of dissatisfied customers when it is really the owners who are to blame for failing to invest in a programme of refurbishment. The hotel is listed as 3 star but I reckon it would be 2 star at best. Finally it is overpriced - probably worth about £60 a night including breakfast.
