    • 8.0.Very Good

      Our room and bed was comfortable. The shower didn't have great pressure but was ample. We didn't use the restaurant so cannot comment on it. The entrance and driveway could use some serious remedial work. The whole place is in need of a total revamp to be honest. It was very quiet though down in "Wing 5". We did enjoy our stay there though.

      The rooms were ok but when they fitted new carpets they didnt adjust the door therefore making the door very hard to open. There was rubbish lying around the grounds and the garden or planted areas was full of overgrow weeds.
