I booked a ‘suite’ as it was shown to have a kitchenette, and large table which I could work at and had wifi. I tested the wifi in the room as it kept cutting out, at best i was getting 0.66 mb/s, so was totally unusable for work. Without all the lights on in room, it was almost entirely dark. There is virtually no access to daylight in the room I was in; and will be the same, due to the layout of the building, for the vast majority of rooms there. Therefore, I was unable to work in the room as planned when i made the booking.
Despite their being a kitchenette, it had no cutlery or crockery. The kettle, after used once, when there was still some heat in the element, would not switch back on again. So I had to stand beside it and physically keep the button switched on until boiled.
The air conditioner in the living room sounded like a turbine. The air conditioner in the bedroom, made a very annoying clicking noise which made it difficult to sleep without earplugs. The bed and pillows in the bedroom were like concrete. I would go as far as to say the worst hotel bed I have ever slept in.
To top it off, on the last night I was there, there was an animal, I suspect a rat from the amount of noise and speed of it, either in the floorboards between the room I was in and the room upstairs or in the room upstairs itself. Every 30 mins it was running around noisily and woke me up. I advised reception and they had a look. As they couldn't find it, i suspect it was in the floorboards.
Am sure it would have been very nice when new and has great facilities for horse riding. But as rented accommodation, no way is this 3.5 star as shown. The entire facility is very much in disrepair and I can’t advise strongly enough, not to make a booking here. There are much nicer, modern places close by for a similar price.
