I am not reviewing the main building of the hotel, i have no idea if that is good or not. My review is specifically about going to the hotel with a dog and staying there.
We wanted a weekend get away during easter, to be out in the country and relax. We had looked at the website of the hotel and it looked very nice, and were expecting that, currently renovated etc. The hotel has one rum for people traveling with dogs, priced just the same as the rest of the hotel. There are no pictures on the website of this room and it is not in the main building but one of the side ones. The room was not anything like what was shown on the website, i would guess it was renovated sometime in 1970's with dirty looking carpet floors, cheap dated looking furniture and bed and a tiny bathroom with also horrible finishes, this was nothing close to what was on the website. After seeing the room we went back to the reception and said the room was not what we expected and that we want to check out, they said we had to still pay full price for the room for all the nights because it was pass the cancellation time, and told us we should just make the best out of the situation. This is one of the most absurd things i have ever heard a hotel say, you do not book a room at a hotel at your own expense to make the best of a situation, the hotel is supposed to try to accommodate you, not the other way around. I think this hotel miss represents what it is completely, if they at least would have warned us, sent us pictures of the room before we arrived we could have made an informed decision about booking a stay there, instead we feel they tricked us with what to expect of the hotel, the decor, the quality and so forth. The hotel did nothing to try to make the situation better or even apologize. I would never recommend this place to anyone, they need to be a lot clearer with what the hotel is and what to expect of it.
