We booked here on the strength of the reviews on this site two months in advance. We paid for a king size bed and were given a double. Dinner in the dining room was served by people who behaved like Basil and Sybil Fawlty. There was one other couple in the dining room. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation but were told to wait in the lobby - and we're left there for a quarter of an hour. Once seated the three course set menu took two hours and 40 minutes to complete. The wait between courses was not less than half an hour. When I offered a credit card for meal payment I was told it could not be processed for two days as the hotel's credit card terminal was not working. The
email receipt promised has not been sent to me. However the breakfast was good and the young person who organized that and our checkout was all efficiency. She seemed to be running the place single-handed....
