4/10 Fair

Unfriendly welcome from reception staff. Bathroom and bed were clean, however décor in the bedroom and communal areas was drab and dated, and wallpaper peeling from the walls in bedroom. Waiting staff at breakfast were friendly and cheerful, and breakfast absolutely fine. Overall though I was disappointed with my stay. I was meant to return for another night later in the week, but cancelled and booked elsewhere.
