This was our 3rd return trip to this wonderful hotel, it was with some trepidation as it has recently been bought by a chain . After receiving an e-mail from the hotel advertising special offers we decided to book on the 'seafood sensation' weekend. Both our previous stays had been excellent in every way, so we were interested to see why they were advertising these themed weekends and if they altered the whole ambience of The Lugger. Our room which was in the main building was great, clean, wonderfully comfy bed and bedding, but no Seboni toiletries which was sad. We booked our meal for 8pm and arrived down just before. It was a while before our drink and food orders were taken which before would never have happened as the staff were just behind you as if waiting in the wings. We didnt sit at our table until just before 9 by which time we were starving. The chef didnt disappoint us despite not being Franz!
There only 2 gripes I have regarding our stay. They are: Early morning staff coming on duty please be quiet as I didnt appreciate the early morning call at 6 outside my bedroom window, and, there seems to be a bit of chaos going on with the evening drinks/meal time.
Caroline the new manager was perhaps a bit too chaotic as she seemed to be rushing around but getting nowhere, saying that,she did introduce herself and gave us round of drinks to welcome us back!! Thank you.
Please visit The Lugger as it is wonderful-you have to go there to appreciate it and you will get why so many people return.
Please,please now you are a chain dont lose this.
