Good & Bad!

Friday night stay was brilliant, so quiet and the room was just great. 10 out of 10 for sure! Saturday night was a disaster, wedding taking place and hotel was overrun by loud people who ruined the stay for us! Given that there is more than 1 wing, surely wedding guests who know what they are letting themselves in for by staying at the hotel, could be housed all in one and unsuspecting guests in the other! Maybe give 2 out of 10 now! Bottom line, I would only recommend the hotel for nights when there is not a function scheduled...so worth enquiring!

Good hotel. Room was on second floor with no lift - could be difficult for handicapped people or those with heavy cases. Breakfast expensive and I thought it outrageous they increased the price by three pounds one morning simply because of a wedding party the night before!
