Clean room, comfortable bed, hotel a little dated but staff friendly enough. Breakfast cooked to order so be prepared to wait a little. Restaurant closed, bar meals choice of 3 main meals, fish, scampi and chicken burger. Had the fish and it was terrible but charged restaurant prices, ate elsewhere for rest of stay.

6/10 Good

Interesting place, clean and cheap
The hotel was a grand place in its time, its a bit tired and could do with a make over. The staff were pleasant and food was very nice, the evening meal menu was good how, however, and this could be my mis understanding ! I did not realise the menu was a set 3 course so having just one main and being charged for a starter and desert I didnt want was a little off putting. That aside for the cost which inclueds breakfast its good value.
