Room was overlooking the car park and was very warm even with window open and was awaken at 4am due to (diesel) taxi bringing drunken guests back.
Breakfast - apart from the pleasant lady clearing our table found the restaurant staff to be very surly. I spent most of my time finding cutlery, napkins and going to the breakfast buffet as food trays were either empty or not very hot & the toast was just dry bread - not toasted long enough. Even when they had just brought food out from the kitchens it was just about warm. Had to request tea & coffee three times which didn't go down too well with the restaurant manager - felt as if we were in his way. At no time did they explain where anything was.
On the upside - they did a fantastic job for the Golden Wedding Anniversary party we attended and the staff that evening were very attentive and pleasant. Top marks for making our friends evening one to remember.
