The hotel was fine and I would stay there again for the great location but we both found the staff very uninterested in us. We went down to the bar for a drink after we arrived and were basically ignored by all the bar staff and restaurant staff until the barman was free to serve us. There was no welcoming glance or even acknowledgement that we were standing there. We were waiting a good ten minutes at the bar to be served. This was pretty much how it went for the duration of our stay. Dinner was served in the bar because the restaurant was closed during the week which we did not know until we asked. Our carvary type dinner was pretty much handed to us in an abrupt manner by the middle aged waitress without any kind of smile and definitely no small talk. We had dinner in the bar yet we paid full restaurant prices for our meal which was only very average carvary food. The young female waitress was friendly but she stood out for us because she was the only friendly member of staff working that night. No other staff member would even make eye contact with either of us, Breakfast was 'functional' in that it was just delivered to our table by another female staff member who I think was a foreign lady. Again no 'good morning' no 'how are you today' no smile no nothing just a feeling of 'here it is eat it or not i could not care less about you'. As we were checking out the receptionist struck up a conversation with us and we were stunned because it was the only conversation any staff member had with us.
