Cold, bare room.... very old fashioned. Tiny radiator and no heating in bathroom. Pre- Requested extra blanket - not forthcoming! Had to sleep with my coat over the thin duvet! Desperately needs updating and a friendlier manager!

We have stayed here many times and will definitely return again. The staff are always welcoming and cheerful, the meals are lovely and good value for money and the breakfast is superb! The rooms are not the most modern but they are always clean and the beds are lovely and comfortable. Nice big baths to relax in, too.

Fab evening meal, served quickly and with...
