We stayed overnight as wedding guests, the ceremony and reception were at the hotel and we arrived at midday and stayed until the next day after breakfast. The reception and greeting were welcoming and the gentleman was helpful on check in. We ate lunch in the bar just after arriving and enjoyed selecting from the vast menu and were delighted with our choice of hot meals and sandwiches, very tasty, good quality and served promptly. Did not like the constant buzz of flies around but thought this was just around the food, we did however discover that the flies are permanent guests and in every room!. The wedding ceremony was wonderful and very professionally handled by the hotel staff, though they could have staffed the bar better when 25 guests all descended at once after the photographs were finished. Once again the food at the reception was a high standard, clearly a talented chef back of house. The temperature in and around the hotel rooms was too high and there is little ventilation which is probably why they supply fans in the rooms. The nights sleep was anything but peaceful, the hotel is very noisy at any hour, staff talking and clattering about, a very noisy vacuum cleaner at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning when the hotel is full of wedding guests who had a very late night, doors banging, we chose not to mention our disturbed night on check out mainly because we were not asked how our stay was but many other guests could be overheard complaining about the noise and disturbance. Aside from the wedding itself and the friends and family of the wedding party we would struggle to be complimentary about any aspect of our visit. Yes the place needs updating as the decor and furnishings are tired and worn but deeper cleaning or vigilance may help to rid the place of flies.
