What a terrific location !
Sadly the accommodation was basic and tired and so was the service.
We booked in for the special Valentines night dinner and had an OK but expensive set meal in a brightly lit dining room. No flowers , no colour , tiny table candles, and no romantic music until we were about to leave. I think they forgot to turn the sound system on.
The dining room staff were OK , but other staff seemed disinterested and not that helpful. Perhaps the financial troubles besetting this state owned chain is impacting the morale of staff.
We were very disappointed and glad to check out next day after one final look at the great view.
