There was no one there when I got there. The email said there would be. Signs indicated I should go to the backdoor to be let in. No one let me in through the backdoor. The only way to get in was to give them a call. Not everyone who arrives in the UK immediately has a working phone - they rely on being able to check into their hotel. On the phone, they said there would be someone in the morning, but then in the morning there again wasn't.

8/10 Very good

Very happy with service and fabulous breakfast, also have a lovely small bar area which we found very useful after returning late in the evening. The rooms were OK, maybe need a little updating but quite adequate for our stay.
