Stayed recently as part of 2 night Groupon deal - only stayed one night. The hallway to the rooms is unclean and unkempt. The room itself is laughably small with a sink in the corner even though the toilet and shower is at the other side of the room. Not a place you could spend time in so went to have a drink and dinner in the bar.
Had a drink outside as the Carrybridge is in a beautiful location, then in for dinner which was below average. The Devil's Hot bread explained by the waitress as being Italian breads with spices and dips is basically an uncooked pizza base with sweet chilli sauce and cheese on it, not a nice combination. Rest of the dinner was fine, yet unremarkable.
After dinner we returned to the bedroom and watched a film on our iPad, not the 12inch, remote-less, 5 channelled TV hanging above the bed. The walls of the rooms are so thin that it was possible to hear next doors TV. Fell asleep listening to the snores of someone next door or down the hall, knowing we would not be staying the second night.
Had breakfast the next morning after showing ourselves to our table and raising the waitress' attention after approximately 15 minutes. "What you want?", she asked. "A menu", we replied. "No, full fry or scrambled egg and toast." OK we thought - we'll have one of each. While waiting, others around us were able to request made to order breakfasts including poached eggs with various amounts of bacon, sausages etc. The waitress was quite possibly one of the worst members of staff we have ever came across. Oh, and there was hair in our milk. Breakfast was incredibly poorly thrown together, everything seemingly being pulled from a chip pan - including the 'breads'. We decided to check out immediately but were forced to wait until staff opened the reception at 11am.
We sped off not knowing where we would spend the next night but knowing that anywhere would be better. Do yourselves a favour and avoid this place at all costs unless you like substandard accommodation and food.
