Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
I am sure the place could have been fine to stay in, but it felt more like a prison camp. Reception were walking out the door when we arrived even though it was 2 hours before close of Checkin. No breakfast served couldn't see a reduction in cost to compensate. Was told duff info about how to get in subsiquently so had to phone night porter as we had to go out to find eveni g meal again cause nothing on site. Room was a little dated, didn't like shutters rather than curtains they don't keep out light. And what guests there where were inconsiderate. Housemaid tried to walk in on us final day many hours before checkout was due.

alright for the price
Nice check in to find out there was a fight and others where leaving because of it, the hotel location is alright but the fact I booked bed and breakfast to find out there was no breakfast was shocking, and on check out the staff not very friendly to say the least. Not a comfortable stay at all.
