Walked in off the street to get a room at this hotel and was pleasantly rewarded.
The room, located on the first floor was in the older section of the building and was wheel chair accessible.
Room 108 is large, spacious, has a full size fridge, kitchenette and is tastefully decorated. Spotlessly clean, modern and the bathroom large due to the wheel chair access, huge shower! Water pressure awesome!
Overall a great room, well priced and located right in town.
So that's all good, though the restaurant..............picture this -
Sitting down for breakfast and the waitress is carrying two coffees, one in each hand, she sneezes three times over the top of them and proceeds to head to the table of the unlucky recipients and the following conversation occurs - waitress "I just sneezed which is really hard to do when you're carrying two coffees" Customer - "I would never had known that if you hadn't told me".............GROSS!
Then, my partner ordered pancakes with "the ice cream on the side please" when the pancakes arrived and the ice cream was atop, I looked at the waitress (different waitress) and she said "yeah, sorry about that, the chef put the ice cream on top before I could tell her not to" she turned and walked away.....WTF?
One other thing, the following mini bar products were out of date - Chips, chocolate, beer (more than 12 months out of date), cans of scotch etc.
Small gripes. Would stay there again though would not revisit the restaurant.
