Very good 8,0
last minute booking
Room was a bit dated but the bed was very comfortable
Anne, ie1 night trip
Fair 4,0
The hotel is dated but very clean and complied with Covid rules so we felt safe. The location is excellent. Breakfast was good and staff all pleasant. We ate in the bar on our arrival and the food was ok. Service was poor, there was seldom anyone behind the bar and we were unable to find a waiter to ask for salt. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the hotel had provided pastries in our room which we appreciated. We heard a child crying late at night and at 4.50am the crying woke us both, it continued until 6am and we fell asleep to be wakened at 06.20 again with crying and banging started, sounded like something hitting the wall repeatedly. We had a 5 hour drive home ahead and we were both shattered after the worst nights sleep Ever.
