Tricky’s is not the sort of place I would normally choose to stay at, but I was in the area for two days on business and this was very convenient for an overnight stop.
Chatting to the lovely lady on reception, I discovered that the hotel changed hands at the end of last year which I assume accounts for the great improvement in recent Trip Advisor reviews!
My room was big (it was classed as a family room) and the bed probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in, other than my own! The wet room-style shower worked well and the whole place was clean and well presented. Views were boring (area of grass), but it was surprisingly quiet.
The restaurant is big, this place obviously caters for a lot of parties - and the food was good pub-style, with generous portions. I had fish and chips that was fresh and good. Staff were bustly and efficient and friendly.
I slept well and, had one of my neighbours not had a work colleague hammering on his door at about 5am telling him he was late and to get up with all speed (although, sadly, not in quite those words!) I would have enjoyed an uninterrupted night’s sleep.
The breakfast room was amazing - high-ceilinged and light and must be a great venue for weddings etc. The breakfast itself was fine, if unremarkable.
Tricky’s lacks charm and is nothing to look at, being a rather odd collection of buildings in the middle of nowhere, but it’s extremely convenient. The beds are wonderful, the food is good and the staff are efficient and friendly. So while you can’t have everything, you can have quite a lot of the things that really matter.
