We did not actually stay in the hotel. My daugher and I called in for a drink about 5 pm on a Saturday. We noticed an univiting bar on our left in the basement as we approached the front door of the hotel, but assumed a drink could be ordered upstairs in their very comfortable looking lounge. Instead we were directed back to the basement. We passed the open doors of storage rooms and then what must be the restaurant, whose tables were completely bare. There was a rugby match on a plasma screen in the bar, and two men sitting at the bar drinking. We were completely ignored by the staff and left after 10 minutes It's a pity the care obviously taken upstairs is not followed through in the bar.
