The location of the hotel is lovely, and the decor of the bar and restaurant are really nice.... its a pity the staff did not match this!
I dined in the restaurant with 3 other friends (all late 30's early 40's) and was very very disappointed. We arrived at the restaurant just before 8pm, and we were told there would be 1 hour to wait for a table for the 4 of us. At 10pm I complained we had still not been called, and the manager told me they were very busy. He did get a table for us at 10.15pm, but when walked through the restaurant, there were plenty of vacant tables.... so obviously they forgot about us, and were not that busy.
The service was really bad, each different waitress we had did not smile, offer any help, we got the impression they just wanted us out of there as soon as poss. The food was nice but not worth waiting for. Our main course was served to us after 11pm!!
We dine out a lot and none of us would return here again, would rather spend my money somewhere else where the staff actually care!
