The interior of the building is ok, though perhaps a little like the backdrop of an Allan Bennett play. But unfortunately things started to go downhill when we were shown to our room. Cramped and claustrophobic is the only description accurate, after being in the place for only a few minutes I felt a strong desire to get out. The bathroom was poor with a cupboard of a shower-room with water that came out a rate scarcely above the pace of a dribble. Showing with one hand behind your back is recommended with hindsight.
Facilities were barely adequate; my partner noticing the surprising lack of a hair dryer.
Regretfully the following morning’s breakfast saw no letting up in these disappointing standards. From taking our seats it took 45 minutes for our breakfast to appear, and when it did, average is the best rating I can offer. Unfortunately that wait seems to be custom and practise in the establishment because the following morning was a similar experience; although it didn’t seem quite as long because we took reading material down with us.
