I arrived at the Skeffington Arms on the 26th of July, it was a bad start as I was left waiting outside the bar with a suitcase in the lashing rain, partly my fault though as the hotel was to the left of it and I had missed that. We met the girl at reception can’t remember her name but she was from Croatia and she was fabulous, I was reassured immediately that we had booked the right place. We really enjoyed our stay and it’s right in the centre of everything and a very beautiful hotel. I just want to throw in three things 1. Parking, that can’t be fixed obviously but it’s a pain in the rain. 2 Lift, it’s scary to use I stayed on second floor and used the stairs. 3 This might be funny but change your toilet roll. Thanks John & Alan
