Everything with my stay was perfect. The rooms were clean, spacious and very well priced for the quality. The food was also excellent along with the choice of drinks at the bar. We really enjoyed our stay however the one thing that was disappointing was when we went for dinner and the service was particularly poor.
We felt ignored by our waiter. He was called Adam if I recall correctly. He seemed to be focused on one table which appeared to be his parents who were also dining. He spent the majority of the time talking to. We had to actually approach him to get his attention.
He didn't seem to care about the other tables. This was very unprofessional and I had to go to the bar to pay to a much friendlier chap.
