The room facilities were very good and as described. The property itself looked a little tired, possibly due to less use during Covid.. Greeted by a friendly and welcoming gentleman on arrival at reception and we had a quiet, relaxing overnight stay....

Room was filthy. Floor was sticky and the room smelt of sour milk. Staff were rude and impolite. Pool closed due to maintenance. Had to pay extra to use bbq. Facilities old and poorly maintained. Shower leaked everywhere. Poor kitchen facilities.

..yes i remember you, we told you politely to check my daughter on the front reception for the BBq package and then u complained & we explained that people dont respect the BBq after use. thats why we charge a small fee. and yes we shut down the pool after your group of young rowers teenages kept throwing stones & rocks into the Pool making it unsafe let alone disrespectful to others and for us to clean up the mess for three days straight??
