Booked for a week but appallingly bad so after first night changed to a different hotel. The staff seemed pleasant enough but there was no heating available in October so made any further nights out of the question.

The bathroom in our room (43) had been refurbished and was lovely but the water would not run away in the shower. The bedroom was old and dated. The food was awful DB&B had dinner out after the...
