Some rooms are better than others,I think you should ask when booking 're the type of room you require.they did serve cider in the bar.breakfast is self service you eat as much as you wish to full English etc...Hope this helps.out door pool is heated but only open certain times of year,indoor lovely and warm.re parking it's at the rear and you enter via the rear strait into reception..evening entertainment good we didn't play bingo.
