Not as good as expected
Arrived to find scaffolding covering the whole hotel for roofing works which was not mentioned anywhere on Room as on the first floor looking directly out into the stairs of the scaffolding which meant keeping the windows and curtains closed for privacy. Room wasn't the cleanest with stained carpets, cobwebs on the ceiling and a smell in the bathroom which we resolved by keeping the plug in the bath. Positives were plenty though, bed was comfortable and lobby / bar was warm and welcoming. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I would not return, as a birthday weekend for my wife the issues with cleanliness and scaffolding works tarnished our stay.

Room was a good size. Cleanliness could be improved with marks on the bathroom and toilet walls not cleaned bathroom in need of refurbishment with bad smell from sink and bathtub sink too Restaurant staff friendly and both evening meals and breakfast were excellent. Disappointed that when I called the hotel for information my call was cut off twice.
