We stayed at The Craster Arms for 3 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
As a previous reviewer said, they can still do more but that is exactly what the Manager told us ("we are getting there").
I paid the same as I would a 4* city centre hotel however the space we got almost made up for that. We stayed in room 1 but did not get the noise issues a previous reviewer did.
I agree with the quality of the towels comment and there was no bath/shower mat so we had to improvise.
We were told we could get milk from the bar (but never managed to remember!)
The breakfast was fabulous (especially the salmon and scrambled eggs!!) and the staff could not do enough to help. They were great.
Only other points to add:
the bathroom could do with more shelves, hanging places for clothes & towels!
as they provide crockery, you really do need somewhere (and something) to wash it with.
Fridge door opens the wrong way.
Need a 'long' mirror.
Overall loved it and hope to be back! THANKS
