We got in quite late after a really hard drive, so I was a bit tired when we checked in so I wasn't sure whether I was picking up a vibe off the reception staff or just imagining it. "No, you're fine," my husband told me afterwards. "That woman was just a *****." And as a result, my experience with this property was all downhill from there. Amazing how just the attitude of the person who greets you can set the tone for the rest of your stay.
The room was nothing to get excited about, slightly nicer looking bedroom than standard, about right for the price, but very ordinary bathroom. Shutters instead of curtains, and one or two had broken slats.
Checking out was the practically the same story again, charmless and disinterested service.
I wouldn't stay there again.
