6/10 Good

Pros: Beautiful location, great parking, very nice staff, food was good at dinner. Cons: breakfast was disappointing, limited options, food nearly gone when we came down for our reserved time. Hotel is very outdated, room furniture was in disrepair, bed was a brick, rooms very very tiny. Bathroom was at least updated, which was a nice surprise. Worst part of our stay was being forced to walk through a wall of smokers every time we wanted to go outside through the main front door. Terrible place to put the smoking area. Although the staff was nice, we would not stay again.

We were put in room 10 which smelt a bit foisty. The light switch was loose on the wall and the room in general needed updating.
