Hotel is set in attractive grounds with rooms located around the swimming pool. Close to the centre of town. Bedrooms are large with a small outdoor terrace but in need of some updating (and this was in the "New Wing"). We had a small double bed with a rather grubby blanket - when will hotels learn that a duvet/quilt with a clean cover is much more hygienic than an aged unwashed blanket? Also the carpet was stained and dirty. Pretty restaurant situated in the middle of the gardens, only spoiled by the television blaring out rubbish the whole time - so intrusive that we gave the second evening a miss and ate elsewhere. Breakfast was not good on either morning - liquid scrambled eggs, almost inedible. With a little TLC this could be a gem of a hotel.
