This hotel is in a spectactular location but is in need of major refurbishment and cleaning.
Arrived on Saturday for one night and emailed prior to arriving asking for an early breakfast on departure which didn't happen.
Only two staff working who seemed to have been abandoned and couldn't find anybody to serve in the bar. Ate in the restaurant as nowhere else for miles around. This was a big mistake as the food was dire and we couldn't eat it.Both staff who were having a bash at the cooking were very apologetic though.
Room was like a throwback to the 70s with really tired furnishing and grubby carpets. Bathroom was minging and I guarantee they haven't had a towel stolen in decades.
The whole place is dark, unwelcomimg and dirty. We couldn't wait to get out in the morning. Breakfast was ok but the orange juice had been watered down beyond recognition. Cooked breakfast was tasty but not enough to keep a two year old going, and we are not big eaters but I was starving.
Then to finish off the manager appeared when we checked out and lied stating he had asked the kitchen staff to come in early regarding our request for early breakfast which she completely denied. Shame as this hotel has potential. I will never go for the quaint looking hotel again without checking reviews. I would rate this on a par with hotels I stayed at as a student, except they were cheap. Do not go here looking for a romantic weekend away, only stay if your car breaks down and all else fails!!!!
