We had reasonably good expectations of this place but a lot was left to be desired in the end. Let me start with the good stuff. The staff is very friendly. That's it. The service was very poor, it's as if the staff in the restaurant needed to get some sort of training as they had very little idea of how to render an even decent service. At the end of our dinner which need not be mentioned in any case, I asked for a cappuccino and I was told there was no milk. Are you kidding me? There was some sob story about how the bar and the kitchen don't belong to the same company and that was the reason the one could not give the other some milk.
The rooms are relatively clean, bed is not comfortable at all. The TV is rubbish, from the size, sound, channel selection and remote.
I didn't bother to look at the rest of the facilities as I ended up going cycling in the beautiful surrounding areas and I left the next morning. I must add that our dinner was slightly better but not good. Breakfast was really just standard.
