The hotel is tired and needs some proper tidying up in some ways this adds to the charm but in others it says lack of care/attention/money.
The most disappointing aspect was the health spa, there are no instructions re it's use, or how to turn things on, the sauna didn't work at all, the pool was dirty and only 2 of the 4 spa pool functions worked once we had enquired how to locate the controls, one of the functions that was working I wouldn't go under as it was filthy.
It felt like the land that time forgot and was a real shame.
The hotel provides no information at all regarding hotel services I.e number to ring reception, room service, there is no guide in the room regarding meal times, and doors are not labelled so you can't find where things are, there are toilets down stairs but you would never know it, and no menu to check out unless you actually go into the dining room which we felt awkward about incase we decided not to eat there.
Breakfast was ok a choice of hot or continental but only one toaster for everyone and never enough fruit for anyone going down after 8 am.
Staff on reception were mainly helpful efficient and courteous.
If you like somewhere a bit quirky and not too perfect this is a good choice, but I do hope they sort the pool area out and put some info files into the rooms.
The sense of space style and charm. We were in a suite (309). The location was fantastic central but quiet and no noise disturbance, the walls were thick so no noise from neighbouring rooms.
Hotel is popular as a wedding function venue for the locals, we saw 2 weddings in the week we were there.
The dining room/function room is large and has an amazing sliding roof.
Rooms and towels were cleaned and changed daily.
It was a very popular and busy hotel but never felt crowded.
