Very nice hotel. Would happily stay there again and it is likely we will re-visit this hotel within the next 2 months. Will also recommend to friends and family members.

The hotel is in need of major refurbishment, the carpets in the public areas are in places very worn and all of the floors creak making it nearly impossible to sleep through the night if people are returning to their rooms after you. The hotel restaurant was...

Dear Tintagel Wizard, I am really surprised at your comments stating major facelift required.
