Have stayed here before and was OK, however this time total shambles , at breakfast toast and coffee turns up after finished eating , we were not alone experiencing this, reason being "I have not done breakfast before" we were told by gir(not local)l serving us !! Dinner well 40 minutes to get 2 starters that did not need cooking!...
