This is the third year that I have stayed at this hotel and the experience is still very good. The bedroom was excellent, the same one that I had last year and one of the largest hotel rooms that I have ever had. However, it is clear that this is a Pub with hotel attached, rather than a hotel with a public bar!
Food in the bar is very good, and a good choice at good value. However expect Good Pub food - not fine hotel dining! Breakfast which is the only meal served in the Hotel Dining Room was a bit of a dissapointment. The scrambled eggs were awful - and clearly had been made with real eggs! It is a great shame that the standards on the hotel side have been allowed to slip a little.
The staff were friendly and yes, I would still return to this establishment.
