The owners have clearly spent a lot of time, effort and money on the property but the outcome is not quite on target as yet. For example, our room was fine in many ways with an excellent view and very comfortable beds. However the blinds at the window were too skimpy to cope with the early rising of the summer sun and moreover had very dusty slats! One of the doors of the wardrobe had come away from its hinge and would not close properly as should have been evident to the housekeeping staff servicing the room as it was to us. The bathroom was modern with a large powerful shower but there was no shelf at all on which to put one's personal toiletries.
We found the quality of the meals to be fine but not exceptional and their price reasonable.
The service and welcome was also fine but we were surprised to be told that there would be a delivery charge for a newspaper when the hotel was but a short walk from the town.
We do not think the property merits four stars as yet in terms of the quality of guest experience.
