If you have a thing for 'Heartbeat' and 1970s School Dinners stay here....

We were anticipating a relaxing weekend break here and at £100 per room (off peak) expected a reasonable standard of accomodation and dinner.

Our 'double room' was 'furnished' a la Coronation Street 'Battersby' style....not enough room to swing a Craster Crab, tired furnishings and a view over a tin roof.
As the bar was already booked for food (warning sign maybe?)we ate in the no view 'restaurant'; seated at 90' to each other, our knees knocking together and facing a wall. No effort ot create any ambience... like being in some elderly aunts' back room she keeps for posh.

At £20 per head we weren't expecting a gourmet meal - just maybe some fresh local produce simply cooked...We wish. My husband had a Moroccan lamb dish which was like something out of Jamies school diners pre Jamie. I had the vegetarian 'bean hot pot' - I kid you not this consisted of baked beans + sweetcorn with thick slabs of partly cooked potato. You could stand a spoon up in my plum crumble pudding. The crockery would have made a service station cafe look cheap.

Breakfast was in same room - we only watned some tea and toast which took over 30 minutes to come.

One redeeming element were the staff - welcoming and cheery - But at £140 per night for an eagerly anticipated break I hope this Ship dosn't 'Carry on Sailing' for much longer.
