The service seemed a little slow.We were a couple dining and both ordered steaks, we didn't order a starter but two couples either side of us had their starters and eaten their main courses before our steaks came out! We'd waited 45 minutes from ordering them, however, when they arrived they were really nice. Some organisation lacking in the kitchen maybe? Also our cups in our room on the second day had not been washed but were turned upside down as if they had been! The hand towel I had left on the shower floor for washing, as instructed by the message on the wall, had been folded and put back on the rail to reuse! Finally, we were left no milk to make drinks! All in all though we had a lovely couple of days at the hotel because of the friendly staff, good food and pleasant atmosphere.

The hotel is undergoing a renovation but we had one of the new rooms which was lovely - clean and fresh with excellent decor. We ate in the restaurant - the food was delicious and the service excellent. This hotel will be even better once the work is complete. If you want to be a little off the beaten track, it is perfect, with The Lakes easily accessible by car and the coast on the doorstep.

I would have preferred more continental choices rather than cooked options for breakfast. Restaurant is popular so book a table.
