Our party of 4 adults, stayed at the hotel for two nights as it was conveniently close to a family gathering in the area. We booked a bed and breakfast package, with dinner included on the first night of our stay. The reception staff were welcoming and professional and our two rooms were conveniently located opposite one another. The rooms were a comfortable size, clean and suitably equipped, however a little dark (although as a positive, the hotel was eco-friendly, allowing guests to dim or brighten the lights as they pleased........personally, I found that the brightest setting was still a little dark for my needs).
The set menu for the evening meal sounded impressive and we were informed that we could choose food to a certain value (with supplements required for a few specific selections). Our waitress misinformed us that our drinks could be included within the set price, as long as the total cost added up to less than the stated amount. My son and I chose to do this and so one of us gave up our starter, the other the desert. Upon receiving the bill however (after our original waitress had finished her shift) we discovered that this wasn't the case.......the drinks should in fact have cost extra! We could have had the starter and desert after all! After an extremely long wait and lengthy negotiations, the hotel honoured the waitresses statement to us and we were not required to pay extra for our drinks! The food on this occasion was extremely disappointing, especially as I have read other reviews highly praising the quality. The chicken was chewy and tough, the potato 'bricks' not cooked. We mentioned this to the waitress who just looked blankly at us. What a shame.
There was a disco on the second night, which was loud but tolerable and it ended at about 12.30 am. However, the laughter, screams and general loudness which was carrying on under our bedroom window, located just above the outside seating area, continued until 3.00 am, when I was beside myself and called the front desk to ask them to request that the revellers quieten down. I eventually got to sleep when the noise subsided.
There was a varied choice at breakfast time ( although I asked if there were any veggie sausages available, but sadly there wasn't). We didn't leave hungry however, and the food was tidily presented and suitably cooked. There was a good supply of tea and coffee.
All in all, we believed that the hotel delivered a service which suitably reflected the tariff we paid. It was clean and convenient for our needs. Just a shame that a couple of 'niggles' might cause us to try somewhere else perhaps, next time that we are visiting the area. less
