Having spent two nights here this week, I have to say we were glad to leave. It's not that any one thing is dreadful, it's just that nothing here is as good as it should be.
The location is great, the views are fabulous from the garden terrace. The staff are all nice and friendly.
So.. Our room was essentially ok. Very tired and in need of a revamp but ok.
The pool and leisure centre facilities are ok, again could be improved but were fine and fully included in the price which was nice.
We had our first evening meal included in our deal so we chose the 2 aa rosette fine dining restaurant. We were the only diners. To be honest I had already somewhat lowered my expectations of the meal, but they were still too high. Service was slow, the food was average, the wine was not what we ordered. This is wanna be fine dining at best.
Having said that, compared to the experience that it the brasserie it was heaven.
The brasserie is tucked away in the basement ('vault'), in desperate need of a revamp. The menu is more than limited to the point of wondering why they bother. Essentially this is the bar/quick snack place for users of the leisure centre. That's fine, but it's really not up to being called a hotel restaurant.
Breakfast... Well it wasn't small! A massive ok cooked breakfast piled high on the plate.
So essentially we were really really disappointed with this place. We won't be returning. The staff are nice and friendly, but the whole package is just not up to standard.
Sorry, first bad review I've entered but sadly needed.
