"We loved the location, staff were so lovely and friendly the place and the rooms a tiny bit tired if I have to be critical but that reflects in the price which is great value for money and it looks like there is work happening as we speak to improve the place, we had a nice meal which was very reasonable priced.. Thank you to all the staff for making us so welcome x"

The attitude of some of the staff. We had a meal at the hotel on the first night of our 2 day stay. The meal was a simple vegetable curry & rice, with half inch thick naan bread; which I've never seen before, & was not very nice at all, although it was expensive. I was up all that night with sickness & diarrhea. My husband went down to breakfast the next morning & explained to various members of staff what had happened to me. It was food poisoning, but he was told it takes 48 hours for any symptoms of that to appear! We're not medically trained, but we know that's wrong. Not once did anyone say I'm sorry to hear your wife's been ill, or enquire how I felt; even as we checked out early as we didn't want to stay any longer than we had to. They were defensive from the start, & adamant it was not their food as no one else had been ill. I only saw one other couple go into the restaurant, so they may have had about 6 diners in all that night. We did not ask for any refunds, or be aggressive or rude to anyone. On our return home, & to add insult to injury they offered us a free meal in their restaurant. Needless to say we will not be making the 4 hour round trip to take them up on their offer !

The bathroom was tiny and the water pressure in the shower was weak, since we had a king room we would have expected a bit better. Otherwise room was spacious and bed very comfortable.
