We stayed for 3 nights....the room was fine and clean as was the bathroom. We enjoyed two evening meals, from a good menu in a comfortable restaurant, wines were a little pricey. Breakfast was very good, though latecomers beware...the food is not cooked fresh for you (nor is it anywhere else of course)...having said that, ask for fresh a fried egg and the staff will oblige.
We found the staff very efficient and most of them were friendly, some seemed a little nervous and therefore cool. They will get better longer with friendlier interaction from guests, though having said that, some of our fellow guests do not seem to have been taught basic manners which must make it difficult for staff.
Overall it was a pleasant break in nice surroundings.....the rooms could do with perking up a little and maybe one day the bathrooms will have walk-in showers.
Bed was a little soft for us but others may differ.
We would recommend this hotel as one or even two up from all the usual battery-chicken establishments because of the staff and restaurant which, though not listed locally is worth a visit.
PS No fridge in room and no air-con... a fridge would be useful in the short-term. A fan was in the room if needed. less
