Tavelled with shearings nice driver Kevin. Front of hotel lovely good view/gardens public rooms in good order then bedroon 29 in which we stayed. cheap late deal so not expecting much. room size reasonable new carpet clean linen blankets/ cover very worn and an old fan provided as the windows did not open very much to allow air in. no shower just an old awkward shaped bath which proved difficult to get into for fit people! view from the room was like looking into a pipe! with the constant dripping of water maybe overflow from the gutter and the noise from the old lift could be heard at all times it was being used. there was a constant smell of sewerage in the room so all rather unpleasant.
The food at dinner was at best bearable it being mostly of poor quality. breafast was reasonable standard but it was all served in a pleasant very fast service from our waitress Laura she was superb as were all the staff all very very good no problems there.
It was such a shame as the hotel could be lovely as it probably once was. a let down due to poor maintenance ,decoration and some upgrading spoiled it for us.
