A few years ago I was taken to the Restaurant for a meal which was great in every way so was disappointed when we found that it was not operating when we stayed recently, on our anniversary.

It was clean and staff very friendly. The property looked a bit out dated from the outside - initial expectations, but inside was better standards

No one at reception when we arrived, though the sign on the door says reception open till 6pm. We arrived at 4pm. We did receive a SMS about what room we were in. Breakfast room wasn't set up ready for breakfast when we arrived. Very poor breakfast. bread was stale. Fruit.....what fruit. there was a bowl of whole apples...that's it! Key to our room was dodgy. Took a lot of attempts by both myself and my husband to open the door. The rooms were very old and run down but clean enough and tidy. Beds comfy
