We rated services and facilities as Poor (0) because of misleading website information: "double room with garden view" There is no garden. Under facilities "garage" is listed. But we were told the garage is difficult to access and we were encouraged to park on the street. Garage facilities were important to us.

The whole experience of the room and the reception was really good as was the restaurant. However we could not get breakfast the next morning - all the empty tables were full of debris and had not been tidied or cleaned. When we asked a member of staff for a table she just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. However, everything was wonderful we were given an executive room for a low fee.
