Just read another review which says it is now closed, but I'll leave my review anyway.
We stayed here for one night in mid September as part of our honeymoon. We paid for one of the cheaper rooms but on arrival the welcoming hostess offered us a free upgrade as her more expensive room was vacant. So that was a good start. However, that was the high point of our stay. On the surface, the hotel seemed to look in good condition and well presented. However, as you look more closely you start to notice the problems. Just little things really but it is beginning to show its age. One major problem I had was the shower. It was over a bath, but the bath was a free standing one. So as a result there was a shower curtain all the way round it. The problem with this is that where the taps are, they had just cut the shower curtain, which meant water leaked down the back of the bath. Their solution? Throw an old mouldy towel down the back of the bath to collect the spillage and hope nobody notices it. It wasn't nice.
Another issue I had was with the jet baths. Our room didn't have one, which didn't bother me to be honest. But the one above our bed in the room upstairs did. It literally shook our room when it was being used. Very annoying at 1145 at night and at 7am in the morning.
My final moaning - when we came down for breakfast we were sat at a table set out for 4. Shortly after another couple came down and the hostess sat them at the table with us. I was literally rubbing elbows with a stranger. Although this wouldn't be a problem for some, I think all of us felt quite awkward. The hostess knew how many people were in the hotel, and had even asked us to say when we would be coming down for breakfast. There was plenty of empty tables (that weren't set) so I don't see why she couldn't have set tables for each group of people. It just felt lazy to me.
One suggestion for the new owners - wireless internet would be nice.
Overall, this place needs an update if it is to continue to get good reviews like it has in the past. However, this would be limited to superficial changes so I think it could be easily done. Good luck to the new owners.
