We spent one night at The Galivant in the last week and although there were plenty of positives, our experience was a little marred by a couple of small but slightly irritating issues.
We arrived shortly before 4pm to quite noisy building work in the reception area and then it seemed to take quite a while before we were eventually shown to our room. The room itself was lovely with a very comfortable bed, great linen, relaxing colour schemes and a general good feel.
We had opted to have dinner as part of our package and sevice throughout the evening was a little on the chaotic side. We had a poor starter but upon pointing this out were immediately offered alternative choices from the a la carte menu. The main course and deserts were really nice but the overall level of people who were in some way dissatisfied that evening did somehow create a slight edge to the evening. Although we did bother to quibble at the time, the prices charged for drinks were higher than those on the menu. By around 20%. So not a big deal perhaps as it was only on two post-dinner drinks but still worth keeping an eye on. Breakfast was good, the staff were lovely and overall this is a fine little hotel which with just a little more attention to detail and better service in the dining room could be quite special.More
