Somewhere around 50 years ago, this beautiful old lady was a wonderful place to eat and entertain. Shooting parties, weddings and celebrations of all kinds were regularly booked and often was very difficult to book the date you wished for . The hosts were never disappointed as this was the place of superb value for money and very warm cheer.
However, after staying in different rooms on two occasions I can honestly say that what I saw in the old building is very saddening. Leaking ceilings, frayed carpets, filthy toilets and rotting window frames left me with a feeling of bewilderment as to how this business can ever function? The basic needs are not catered for in any way, and I would definitely not recommend this hotel to any young lady traveling alone, as the locks on the doors are not serviceable and the hotel is unmanned at night.
The bathroom is truly revolting, dear God!!!!!! and the hotel 'rules and regulations' do nothing to reassure you of the quality of the other patrons as 'anyone found using drugs on the premises with be reported to the Police'. Hmmm!
However, no landlord will be able to improve this crumbling old wreck unless they have endless funds and the client group to support this venture. Sadly I can see the inevitable irreversible decay of the property over the next few years.
