Bistro couldn't cope! At 6pm we were told to come back an hour later as there was a bus group of 18 elderly people who had pre chosen their meal and were being served 1st. We just order soup of the day as it was quick, came out warm with a very hot dinner roll.

The room was nice. Bathroom was not clean with dirty water still on the floor from the last guest or the cleaners shoes and room was hot as air con was not turned on. We checked in at 6pm and the room took 1hr to cool down. With 41°C temperature it would have been a nice touch to have the room nice and cool on arrival. The mattress was very hard but room layout was good. Hotel Staff were very informative and friendly and accomodation is in a very convenient location to town activites and the local pub.
