Fair 4.0
Ok hotel.
Firstly, I would say that the room was not worth the £125 I paid for it. The room is OK. Nothing more. The walls are very thin, so much so that when the surrounding rooms put their TVs on in the morning, you can hear what they're watching. The 'shower' was a dribble of either scalding or lukewarm water- no in between. Rattling bedroom door whenever nearby room doors were left to auto close, horrible slippery acrylic bedroom carpet and a nearby barking dog were some of the other low lights of our stay. On the plus side, the late night receptionist was very friendly and helpful when we arrived later than we had expected to, at 11pm (thanks M6). I have stayed in cheaper, nicer hotels- this one was a disappointment, but I suppose you are paying for both the hotel and the isolated location. I wouldnt stay here again.

Needs an injection of cash and decent management.
The hotel is tired and needs an injection of both cash and decent management. Whilst the bedroom and en suite are as clean as they can be, they just need someone to try using the facilities themselves to understand what needs improving. Grey Paint does not solve holes in the bath, rubber eggs at breakfast or staff that tell you that filter coffee is "like" espresso! I know what espresso is and that is why we asked if we could purchase one from the bar instead of the lacklustre filter coffee....but alas this was not possible. Neither did we enjoy the shower with no pressure that you couldn't stand under, or listening to staff conversations outside the room at 4am....or for that matter, our view.....of another room. Oh, and don't be fooled by signs with arrows, they nearly all point in the wrong direction....Best avoided.
