We parked our car and walked to the reception area, we passed several people walking in the opposite direction. We waited 10 minutes,walking around looking for someone to check us in then a woman finally came. I said we had been waiting a while and she very abruptly replied "well you saw me in the car park i was showing guests to their rooms " how were we to know who she was, she hadn't made any effort to speak to us. She checked us in then asked for payment, i asked if we could take out luggage to our room first, as we had now been waiting in the hallway for over 15 minutes ( a lovely 5 star welcome). Five minutes later i went to reception to pay, the charming lady was speaking on the telephone, she didn't notice me and i waited a while then managed to gain her attention. From her side of the conversation the phone call was obviously personal not business and she made no effort to hang up when i said i had come to pay. I found this very rude and i said i would come back later, she carried on her telephone conversation. The room was small but clean apart from the toilet seat which was grubby. It was a bit like being at your nan's house with lots of crystal and nick nacks around. 3 star maybe. Good location, breakfast ok, not worth £90 a night.
