Liked the friendly staff but they had a busy weekend and you could see they were stretched. Room was clean and all amenities provided. However it was too warm at night and no air con. Asked to book restaurant on check in and was informed no need to book they will accomodate you. When we arrived fown to the bar we were told not a hope if getting a table they were too busy. Joke!! Not impressed. Roger the barman was very helpful and recommended a lovely restaurant in the town. Would have expected porridge to be made to order instead of in a heated pot. Breakfast food was not very hot. At check out there was only one receptionist at peak check out times. Wouldnt be in a rush to go back.
