At breakfast time in the restaurant this morning, from our initial greeting to our departure it was diabolical. When My husband asked for hot chocolate for our daughter he was told " You'll have to wait" then after some wait another lady said if we have already asked for a hot chocolate she would not be making us one.

Stayed overnight, the room was clean and serviceable - although was a twin when I'd booked a double. Food was good although a number of the menu items were unavailable. Service was good and staff were friendly. Hotel has no ambience and the internet connectivity was problematic.
