Having read previous accounts of stays at this hotel, I was a little apprehensive about going there. However, I can now wholeheartedly report that my 3 night stay with my wife was a great experience. Yes, ok so the room was a bit dilapidated and I sometimes wondered with the decor around the hotel as to why it still maintained it's 4 star status. Silly things really like paint drips in the bathroom that could have so easily have been wiped up by the decorator. The toilet roll holder hanging off the wall and the shower rail in a similar state. But all this in my opinion was offset by the exceptional service that Christopher Perfect(this was his real name) afforded us. Bags carried to the room and our every request accommodated. Bags of hot water and nice big fluffy towels. The dinner we had each evening was exceptional and the breakfast choice(continental, cooked breakfast or both was more than ample. Dinner staff were good but the girls were better than the boys. Lighting table candles, giving out bread rolls, jugs of water but perhaps these are female touches.
For the money we paid, our stay was exceptional value and I would not hesitate to go there again. If the hotel owners could only spruce the place up a bit, it would be wonderful. I hope this review is helpful to others.
