    Lovely hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was fab, everything you could wish for. WiFi was great. Room was clean but quite small, that was our only complaint. Nice spa pool and sauna. Would definitely use again but ask for a bigger room.

    Hi Amy, I can only say, lucky you for a clean room. We had to report them to the Environmental Health who agreed with us, sent an inspector and immediately instructed them to remove the bird poo from the window-sills that had been there for over a year, breeding bacteria. They also instructed them to do a deep clean with professional cleaners and I have an email from them stating the bad condition of the hotel. Take a look at the photos on my review, the dirt was everywhere, toilet, taps, bath, sink, carpets, radiators. I tried to have a civilised conversation with the hotel and they had said they would look into it... I am still waiting and waiting for my refund that never happened. They had an extremely bad attitude and seem only competent in replying with reasons for their downfall that are actually not true. I had booked 2 rooms and the other had body fluids on the cushions, pillow and bed. They are a disgusting organisation and the staff clearly couldn't give a fig. You must have had "the" clean room - as I said before, lucky for you.
