For me there were only minor gripes; just little things such as that the hotel is decoratively tired and a little dated, the curtains and bed spread was like something from the 80's! I was hoping for a wow factor to the rooms but our room was very average. Bed was pretty comfy; would of preferred a duvet rather than big old wooly blankets though. It was lovely to have a small table and 2 chairs in the room with a lovely view out of the massive window. It was great to have an en-suite and although the shower was lovely and powerful the shower curtain was useless water spilled all over the floor. I don't know if it is the case all the time, but the Hotel is extremely hot; seems like the central heating is on at full blast at all times, and we couldn't turn it down in our room. Which meant we had a slightly uncomfortable evening and we even slept with the bedroom window open! (in February)
The Hotel is practically at the very top of a hill, which is very steap; I am quite active my self and found the slog back to the hotel from the town quite tiring. The hotel is quite rambling inside; we were on the 3rd floor and once out of the tiny lift there were steps up and down twists and turns etc, which didn't necessarily bother me but a word of caution to anyone with mobility difficulties.
The food was decent, it wasn't always entierly to my taste; but the service and presentation was excellent and there was barely any wait to get our food. All the staff were very friendly and I think for the price we paid (£99 each for 2nights HB) the hotel was excellent value for money and I would definately return, and I would reccomend it.
