We've stayed here several times before and it has deteriorated significantly since our last stay four years ago. We stayed two nights and for the first night the place appeared to be unmanaged in stark contrast to our previous experience. We had booked one of their luxury rooms but the television didn't work and the response from behind the bar (the only member of staff I could find) was very unhelpful, almost dismissive. In the event a customer installed a television from another room some time mid-evening. The following day the original television had disappeared for repair but the replacement had been left disconnected. They have moved the bar since we were last here and this has the effect of turning the restaurant area into more of a bar meals space. We had booked the restaurant for both nights but checked we could eat in the bar if the restaurant was empty. We were therefore very surprised that the restaurant was not open and we were shown to a table in the bar. This is probably where we would have eaten anyway but feel we should have been told the restaurant would be closed when we booked it; just another sign of no obvious management. The food has become average at best and the wood and slate platters other reviewers have commented on are unpleasant. I ordered a bottle of wine and was astonished when it came decanted; I would have chosen another bottle had I known and, shockingly, I wasn't shown the bottle so it could have been anything. We'll probably find another place now which is a pity; this used to be good but no longer is.
