Attending a wedding and booked several rooms for family members and friends - over 30 rooms booked. Wedding commenced at 3.00 pm (not on site) and we had pre-warned hotel of wish to access room in order to change into outfits.
Offered room at 2.50 - room not changed from previous occupant but just wanted to change and therefore accepted it of course.
On checking out following morning I mentioned that my stay would have been more pleasant if I had had access earlier, particularly as the room was not ready anyway - I just wanted somewhere to change after all. The 2 staff members argued with me about the fact that rooms were not advertised to be ready earlier but in such an establishment which suggests lavish care and facilities I would expect staff to accept my mild comment and agree that they had made an effort but it was not possible for whatever reason. In my opinion the hotel needed more staff to service rooms on that occasion due to our wedding and another going on that weekend at the hotel. They knew we were coming and wanted to change outfits there, after all.
Bed comfortable in garden room complex although room soul-less and un-interesting. Like hardback books available in room. Breakfast standard with poached fruit available although pastries were overcooked and far too crisp and crunchy, not flaky.
