Nice stay helpful staff...... breakfast not so
It is a lovely place too stay such helpful kind staff .....my only complaint was the breakfast which is not such a major issue the bacon seemed like it was hardly cooked and most breakfast items beans scrambled eggs sausages mushrooms and hash browns were cold or empty so had to wait for these to be replenished ....so was unable to eat my full English breakfast all together on both days plus other guests experienced the same problems while staying as I overheard there feelings on this too.. ....it was one of my worst breakfast's experience in any stay I have been on around the UK....but other than that I would be happy to stay again but minus the breakfast though for now .....some kitchen issues that I am sure can be easily solved in the future and move forward to make this stay even better next time
