We stayed here several years ago and were excited to go back. However, it was very disappointing. When we booked I was very specific about my vegetarian diet but at dinner that evening the dining room /kitchen staff had not been informed, so we had a long delay.The tasting menu which we opted for was rather bland, several courses tasting quite similar to each other.The dessert was inedible.
We didn't realise there was no option to breakfast in our room and didn't fill in the in-room leaflet. The dinner staff informed us we needed to do this so we told the front desk that we would leave the leaflet outside our room. It was never picked up and only that I went looking downstairs next morning we would not have had any breakfast.
I felt overall there didn't seem to be anyone in charge here.There was nobody around checking on things and our experience was that the staff didn't communicate with each other either.
On the plus side, the room was lovely and the area very nice also.
On the whole though I found this an extremely expensive letdown.
