This is a lovely hotel to stay in. It is run by a lovely bunch of people who are extremely helpful and happy. Our only downside for us was the minimal selection of vegetarian food. The waiter said they'd change stuff around to try and accomodate us, but we couldn't really see how you can do that with steak and ale pie or sausages!
My husband had the only veggie thing - haloumi - which was okay, but it wouldn't have been his first choice. I would recommend the Devonshire mezze - it was delicious! Not a scrap was left. I occasionally eat fish so went for the fish and chip option which I never do because I prefer it in paper!!! The food was expensive £14 for fish and chips, but have to say - very nice indeed.
Breakfast was amusing when asked if we wanted full English and we mentioned we were vegetarian, the look of horror on the young man's face - bless him said - we have continental or salmon with scrambled egg!! We had poached egg on toast and asked for tomatoes to be added. All of this to the loud jazz playing in the background - very funny!!
Our room was small and compact. Had to move the kettle to the floor to make a cuppa as powerpoint too far away from table. Toilet is almost in the sink!! But it was clean and for one night, not a problem. (room 4) For us the heating was a problem as it was on full sauna heat - the hallway was scorching! We needed the window wide open all night to try and cool off. No radiator in our room - so where was the intense heat coming from?
All in all, would return for a night.
