I did not stay at the hotel so I cannot comment on the hotel or rooms.
However, I can comment on the restaurant - it was awful. I was greeted by a waiter who was very condescending of my solo dining, and made me feel uncomfortable about doing so by making comments about it. I was seated between two other tables which was fine; however the woman at the table to my right was served the wrong meal and promptly left, and the family to my left were served at totally different times, the parents were told their meal was taking longer and it would be 20minutes after the kids - this is terrible service. My own experience with service was okay other than the condescending waiter and the waitress who obviously didn't know what was on the menu. The food was very average, and not much care had been taken with chopping vegetables. I then went to pay, and the bar staff tried to make me pay for the family next to me, and got snotty with me after I told them for the fifth time that the bill produced was not for my table.
I would NOT recommend this restaurant at all, I was appalled by the standard of service.
