Stayed for one night to attend evening Wedding Reception. First impressions where excellent. Checking in was fast and efficient, Receptionist was friendly and courteous. When we had originally booked there had only been double rooms available (was sharing with my mum) but the Receptionist informed us that she had managed to allocate us a room with bed and sofa bed, which was much appreciated. Room was spacious and clean and more than adequate for our stay.
We decided, along with 4 other family members, to have a bar meal before getting ready. Bar staff where helpful. There were a couple of other small groups also eating and we noticed that the meals were taking some time to be delivered to table. We decided to place our order sooner rather than later. It took almost 45 mins for our food to arrive. I understand that the Wedding Dinner was also taking place, but I would have thought that staffing would have been taken into account.
When the time came to go to the Reception the only way to get to the Suite was to go outside and around to the other side of the Hotel. This is ok when it is dry, but less than ideal when it is raining as it was at the time.
I also thought that bar prices were a little on the high side.
I want to finish on another positive by saying that breakfast was good, plenty of choice between fruit, cereals and cooked breakfast.
Having said all that I would stay again. less
