Stopped at the cottage hotel with the wife on a 5 day tour with Alfa travel. The hotel was spotless. The manager and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was lovely and the 3 course evening meals could not be faulted. The biggest problem we had was that the bed was so comfortable it was hard to get out of it for breakfast. The evening entertainment was great with one guy doing 22 tunes on 22 different instruments!
Was sad to here that the hotel is being demolished next year to make way for ' luxury apartments ' ( whatever they are).
I hope the council has a rethink, but if it goes ahead I'm sure the hard working staff will walk straight into another job.
All in all a lovely stay and a big thanks to everyone.
