Hotel was clean, the beds comfy and the staff were polite. But a few things to note which we found dissapointing. So we had a large deluxe king room, I would of hoped for 2 large towels we had 1 large towel for 2 people to use? The shower was lovely BUT, by the time we had both showered the bathroom floor had a puddle on it and we had to use one of the 2 hand towels to soak it up. The lamp on the bed on one side was loose so no direction, and if you had the main lights on don't look up if your laying on the bed you would be blinded by the spot lights. Lovely TV but no way to tell what programmes were coming up or were on as no info under guide and apparently it was a Wednesday in April? We decided we would eat at the restaurant, well we went to the bar first hubby asked for a pint of bitter the staff had no idea what this was?, I made a comment about ohh apparently they have cocktails, this led to the bar staff looking panicked so I dropped it. The food prices all seemed pretty high and honestly the whole area felt cold and clinical, and being dissapointed about the limitation on drinks we decided to walk the 3 mins to a Brewyers fayre which was opposite, best decision we made, food 1/3 cheaper, they knew what Bitter was and had a great selection cocktails. Breakfast was included in the price, it was ok but I have had better, again the resturant area really felt cold and clinical. The staff when chatting to were lovely, the bed and room overall was clean and comfy but just be ready to have waders for the bathroom and to bring extra towels with you. Had hoped for a bit more but recommend the Brewyers fayre opposite atmosphere and staff were excellent.
