Hotel is very tired as well as restaurant staff. We stayed in the self catering cottage which was comfortable enough however could do with more cleaning. Especially Sofas were a bit dirty.

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.
