The hotels was perfectly located. Nice and easy to get to town from there, but far enough away to make it quieter at nights. Right opposite the Meadows too, so ideal for a nice walk too.
The staff at reception were very nice and helpful. The room itself was nice, and bed very comfortable.
The only reason it didn't get full marks was the breakfast let the whole experience down. On the whole the staff at breakfast were very nice and friendly, even though one did try to take my plate soon after I got it.
The cold, buffet things were fine, but the cooked things were horrible. The vegetarian sausage was awful, the potato scone was cold, and like the cheapest, crappy ones you get from the bargain section of supermarkets.
Eggs weren't free range either - you have to go pretty far these days to find any b&b or hotel that doesn't use free range, so that was pretty poor. However, I was impressed that they were honest about that, so that was a plus point (otherwise they would have been short two scores, not just one).
It's a shame because breakfast is the last experience of a hotel before leaving, and that left an otherwise lovely stay tainted for us.
If we stay again, we'll be getting breakfast elsewhere.
