Just back from a weekend break with my wife. Hotel grounds are well maintained and clean however the bedrooms could do with some TLC the sink was cracked and the carpet loose.On a brighter note the staff were polite and attentive and the buffet breakfast was very nice.Overall a pleasant stay

The hotel just lacked in providing us with the nostalgic-esque feeling we expected from the description and gallery photos from their website. Will vouch that the grounds have...
