Just returned from a stay at The Daffodil on 29th and 30th June 2014. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the views first class and the food in the restaurant was Excellent. After eating in the restaurant on Saturday night we had a drink in the bar within the restaurant area. At just before 11pm the barman said we would have to leave the bar as he was far too busy with a range of different jobs to serve us any more! It was recommended that we went down to the bar in the entrance if we wanted any further drinks. We had been told earlier in the day that the bar in the entrance was only for wedding guests and we would not be able to get served. As we were speaking to the barman that was closing down on us the barman from the entrance bar came into the restaurant bar and informed us that if we came down to the entrance bar that he would not serve us as it was purely for wedding guests! The two barmen had an argument in front of us both claiming reasons for why either of the bars cannot serve us any more! We left our drinks on the bar and went to bed instead!
I have never ever seen such unprofessional behaviour in any hotel in all my life! We were checking out the hotel for a potential wedding venue for next year and can safely say we won't be getting married at The Daffodil!
