One guest appeared to have nailed it.
On arrival the parking facilities were horrendous,down a steep, narrow driveway to a car park that only really allowed spaces for small cars and not a great number at that. Fully booked it would not accomodate everyone. The hotel room was comfortable and basic, no niceties i.e. shower gels etc, although this is a 2 star so maybe we were expecting too much. Our room faced south overlooking front of hotel and busy road, therefore hot and noisy,(no air con), added to which ,unfortunately was the ever present cigarette smoke which wafted up into the room if you left the windows open.
Staff very friendly and helpful, and although there was plenty of food, it was more like a café than restaurant; sachets of sauces etc on table. The food was plentiful but always plain, no hint of herbs or garlic and to our mind more like school dinners, no fresh fruit, packet soup,tins frozen veg and sauces, and the salad was literally lettuce,tomato and cucumber. Cheese board, only available with cream crackers and offering a blue chees, a cheddar,Edam and cheese triangles.Wow ! Should you happen to be a vegetarian,well - poor you,!; the only options available for dinner were omelette or salad, until we requested fish. The barman certainly was a dour Scot but interestingly informative. very little entertainment, and it would appear from our conversations that the management is resistant to change to do with food choices or quality etc.
