8/10 Very good

Pleasant stay, very reasonably priced.
Stayed for 2 nights and was happy overall. Staff were friendly and welcoming, room was clean, pricing was within my budget. Cooked breakfast in the morning not so good - buffet style/hot plate, and food was luke warm. The beans were hot though. This is the downside of hot plate service. There was plenty of food a available though, cereals also. Dinner at night however a different story. Different menu each night with several options. Both nights the food was really good. Menu has set pricing of 1, 2 or 3 courses. Which was very reasonable. Unfortunately the company left a little to be desired on the first evening… there were a group of tradesmen in who were obviously regulars as they were very familiar with the staff. With that being the case, I feel the staff should be comfortable enough without being prompted, in reminding them that there are other guests dining - their language was very colourful and loud. I felt very uncomfortable and got through dinner as quick as possible. Was looking forward to the pool (one of the reasons I booked here). Unfortunately the pool is not that great - kidney bean shaped, which does not allow for a lot of people in the pool especially if you actually want to swim lengths. I managed, but I felt very conscious and almost guilty of getting in the way of others. I certainly enjoyed the steam room afterwards. The location is about 1.5 miles from the town centre, so a quick drive or a nice wee walk if you prefer.
