We were somewhat disappointed by our break at this hotel, particularly my husband who booked it as a treat for me. On arrival the back entrance area was untidy, obviously due to some minor work which was going on. On reaching reception we were greeted by someone who appeared very ill at ease at front of office and who lacked any kind of enthusiasm. Having seen the pictures on the internet beforehand I was quite excited about seeing our room, expecting similar standards to those on the pictures. Initial impression was that for the money we had paid the room was pretty small but the decor was relatively good. On entering the bathroom however disappointment grew. There was rust covering the entire front of the radiator, for which I feel there is no excuse. On using the shower a bit kept fall off and then on trying to use the sink tap it turned fully round on itself everytime it was turned on or off. Compared to some B&Bs we have stayed in the standard of the room was not even on a par with the £50.00£60.00 a night rooms we have booked in the past. On trying to add a positive note, I would say that the lounge/bar area was nice and I was impressed by the choice of drinks and cocktails. On settling our bill we were asked if we enjoyed our stay and we were both honest about being disappointed about the standard of the room and that it did not live up to the expectations of the website. The young girl on reception didn't seem overly bothered by our concerns and just smiled inanely. Overall, I would say beware when booking any of the standard rooms - on skimming the reviews, those who have stayed and given good reviews obviously didn't stay in our room!
