We stayed here for one night " Romantic Break " the room was lovely and the service was good.
Remembering how this hotel used to be with it's restaurant and the gourmet food I was expecting the same but all that has changed now.
A new brasserie has been added since the last time we visited and to be honest it wasn't very inviting. It is stark and cold looking and there's a kind of open upstairs seating to it.
We chose to sit down stairs as my husband has trouble with the steps so we sat and waited and waited and although the staff saw us sat there no one made any effort to come to our table.
In the end my husband went upstairs to the bar to make some sort of contact with the staff.
We got the impression that the staff would rather you sit upstairs where the bar is so they don't have to keep running up and down the stairs.
Having said all that the food was good and tasty and having seen some of the tapas coming out to the tables it looked quite good.
Next morning for breakfast it was a bit like a workers canteen, oh I wish they had never got rid of their lovely restaurant. In total the food is good and staying at the hotel was good but that uninviting " canteen " spoils it. What a let down to a beautiful hotel.
