Recently stayed at this property. I phoned the night before and booked a room but when we arrived they said they had no record of our booking. Their hotel rooms are extremely small and on the dark side of the building so felt like we were in a cave. As others noted the beds are soft and uncomfortable and with no chairs in room are the only place to sit. Reception staff are overly formal, 'stuffy' and dressed in dark suits which seemed completely out of place in a country setting. On check out I mentioned that I was disappointed that our booking hadn't been made when I had phoned the property directly. The manager, Sharem, was only interested in getting the person's name that I had spoken to. When I told him that I couldn't remember and surely there weren't many at reception at 7pm on a Sun night he fobbed me off as though nothing he could do. Why is it the responsibility of the customer to have the name of the person we spoke to. I've never understood that!!
