Although travelling as a couple we stayed for three nights in the family room which was lovely and spacious however as noted in an earlier review the hot water seemed to take an age to get to the shower, the plug in the sink did work although a sign on how to use it may be helpful.
The biggest fault was that the toilet flush was not working properly and although it was mentioned each morning it had still not been repaired when we left.
We too noticed that the garden area was full of uncollected glasses and dirty dishes, not unnoticed by the local cat and a seagull.
The first morning the breakfast bar was lacking in clean plates, cups, napkins, brown bread and marmalade. Guests had to keep asking for things and the whole area looked like it needed a clean and tidy up, but by day three this had improved, maybe down to individual staff members?
Minor faults but the sort that make or mar an overall impression. Having said that we would certainly stay again.
