A large coach party from Alfa Holidays visited this hotel and on arriving at the hotel quite a few eyebrows were raised at the state of the hotel facade. Windows were missing all replaced with wood boards and the stonework appears to be in need of renovation. It turns out that the hotel is being renovated and the leaded light windows have been removed for restoration and will be returned to the hotel in the near future, also the stonework will be renovated as time and money will allow.
On arrival we were greeted nicely by the duty manager and quickly found our allocated rooms although if you are able use the steps as the lift is VERY SMALL. The rooms are nicely decorated with new beds and clean linen and towels and are of an adequate size.
The staff at the hotel are very helpful and all seem to speak good english even though the staff appear to be very thin on the ground and have to do more than one job around the hotel.
Food is of a reasonable standard, not large portions, but ample for the older generation.
The service in the dining room by only two waiters/waitresses is very quick and the staff are very attentative to all your food needs. A nice touch is the quiz paper at reception which can be collected most days and finding the answers will pass quite a bit of time in the nicely decorated lounges of the hotel in the evening, also a small selection of table games are available in one of the lounges (we passed quite a bit of time playing dominoes). Entertainment is available each night with a game of bingo first, then live entertainment although the singers could be a bit loud as the room is not that big.
All in all an enjoyable hotel but if you`re looking for four star service go to another hotel, but if you`re looking for value for money why not try it.
