The hotel is situated just off a main road and whilst the road is quite noisy, the rooms are of a reasonable standard. On the first evening I chose to eat in the hotel and was able to pick a table slightly away from the main dining area, which is quiet bright. The food was excellent - the Argentinian steak cooked to perfection. Altogether a very good dining experience.
I decided to dine again at the hotel given my previous experience, but this time had to contend with the Head Waiter who would not let me dine in the same area as the day before, despite three tables being free (of five in total). I was told the hotel had 75 people staying in it and I would need to dine in the main dining area - either on a table for two or a table for four. This made no logical sense to me as it is not possible to reserve a table. This area is very bright, next to the bar and in my view wholly unsuitable for individual diners - think 'Billy no mates' in the spotlight and you will get my drift. Whether I had upset him by asking for a more secluded spot or not, I have no idea but the Head Waiter 'plonked' my salad between my knife and fork (saying nothing) in a Basil Faultyesque manner to only highlight his rather brusque demeanour. The Cordon Bleu was as dry as a bone. It also transpired that during my 90 minute dining experience the restaurant ended up less than half full thus I could easily of have dined where I wanted. The other staff members were very pleasant and attentive.
I will not return, although that's a shame as the steak really was very good!
