Not for Coeliacs --despite the prior notice
The room was comfortable, clean and warm. The welcome by Evelyn was very good but the breakfast service was poor and hap hasard. We had pre booked two nights and had sought a gluten free breakfast, however I had luckily brought GF cereals and bread with me as there was very little GF available. I actually got non-GF puddings in my fried breakfast and possibly contaminating my breakfast !!!. It make me wonder if the staff actually ever read and took any notice of my request for a GF breakfast. Overall it was not a good experience and over priced
