A good weekend

Customer review rating 4.5/5

We stayed for a night to have a weekend away somewhere different. The hotel is really well decorated and very clean. All the key elements - breakfast, check in etc - were good. They made some vegan alternatives at breakfast which was great.

The room and the staff were excellent, but the quality of the breakfast food has not improved since last time. Scrambled egg leaking water, dried surface of grilled tomatoes and unappetising bacon and sausages.
