Like Ye Olde English Manor House with rooms to match
Booked: Superior Double room with extra bed room nos 36
Reception lady was lovely and gave us a quick tour of the Cellars as we’d missed the 20 euro tasting (well overpriced)
Great ‘cavern’ like tunnels approaching lift to room.
Character (small) cellar.
Well sized bathroom with double-sink and additions of towelling robes etc. which were just what you’d expect.
Not so Good
Dreadful breakfast – well overpriced at E22!! For this I’d expect the Chef to be tossing pancakes and whisking up fluffy omelettes. Instead it was a poor show of a buffet with cold egg, cold bacon (but barely bacon as we know it) and cold, awful sausages. Terrible service from the waitress when we asked her to ‘heat things up a bit’ – she didn’t even apologise or acknowledge us. We waited ages then left to head for the reception for a refund of 66 Euros…. (yep, you heard right – there is no typo in this figure which equal £55!!!!
Evening meal well overpriced for a pretty ‘average’ meal – which has been put on a big white plate and decorated with one carrot and two mangetout to make it look gourmet.
Pool area has a glass barrier all the way round it which totally ruins the whole pool area. On asking we were told ‘it’s to prevent children from falling in’. Well….
a) I didn’t see a child as it’s not a children’s hotel,
b) Obviously there must have been some ‘incident’ in the past for the barrier to go up. Take it down and put a disclaimer that ‘Parents are responsible for their children’s safety whilst in the pool area’!
Reception staff (ladies) carry in your luggage – where are the porters?
Wi-fi advertised as available in the ‘entire hotel’ – but should say ‘excluding bedrooms’ (rr certainly ours anyway).
Rooms are by no means large.
Not value for money – if you are going to charge 300 euro for a room plus 38 euro for a rollaway bed for a child (!!!!) and 22 euro for a child’s breakfast (!!!) it all needs to be a lot better than it is.
