Fantastic setting and we were impressed by our family room which had lots of space and was nicely presented. The hotel has obviously been recently re-decorated and the interior and exterior spaces are pleasant and stylish. Also pleased with the indoor pool, which although small is adequate for a dip.
However there were a couple of negatives:
- The bar is only staffed intermittently (on demand) and the person serving had clearly little experience. For instance he didnt seem to understand that the glass should be tilted when pouring a beer. Surely Bartender page 1!
- We had to wait for 1 hour for our food to arrive in the restaurant, and were told that we confused things by not ordering a starter! The food was OK when it arrived, but overpriced. The addition of a few more vegetables would have made such a difference. 1 piece of beef, 1 carrot, 3 potatoes and a yorkshire pud for £16 far too steep. Overall standard of serving staff was poor, they even ask how the meal was and really just left us to our own devices.\
Shame, as we really liked the room and hotel overall but the restaurant was a let-down and will probably mean we wont be re-visiting.More
