When we arrived, we didnt find the guy at reception friendly. The photos on wotif was glammed up compared to what we actually got. Pool was cold, thought it might be heated. Our bath drainage was bad, having a shower it filled up in the tub. No kitchen lid to wash the dishes. Fluff from the blankets went all over the carpet & housekeeping ignored it, so didnt vacuum it. Very disappointing.

We really enjoyed our stay. The parking was easy and the room spacious and clean. Lovely shower too! We got a great price compared to similar hotels close by. The room got a little colder at night and it would have been great to have the heat pump on before we arrived and there wasn't enough lighting in the room. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.

The property was a little run down - with cracked tiles outside. Our room was clean but the toilet needed some attention with not being cleaned up to standard. The shower head was broken - when we brought this to the Manager's attention, and ask it we had broken it, we were not impressed. Very nice place to stay -would recommend it to other people
