Hotel itself is very nice, decor is eye catching. The room was a good size and clean, however the zircon did not work and the room was very hot poor nights sleep, NOT HAPPY. On check out informed the reception man, he said he would get it fixed however not much use to me as was checking out, no offer of compensation either......, secondly the TV was missing batteries from remote had to ask for them also.
The restaurant:- We had dinner not the greatest by a long way, The pate starter was very odd, it had very tired salad, pate and what i can only describe as a popadom broken up with some over done french bread toasted, the red onion jam was nothing more than red onions in sweet water, not jam as you would expect. Main course, was cooked correctly however over seasoned with pepper which was all that could be tasted, the onion rings were bland and greasy, oh and some more tired green stuff. The sweet potato chips were nice.
Breakfast was a buffet style and was fine. I must say overall I would look for another property to stay when next in the area or insist that these issues were put right or given another room. The room was 110, tooooo hot.
