Arriving by car I found the access a little confusing, but there was enough parking for all. Check in was a delight being sorted by Magda, who was charming and very helpful, asking if I wanted a morning call and a paper. Both of which I ordered but neither arrived. Rooms are very pleasant but in need of a refresh, but the bathroom was clean and the bed comfortable. The dining room is open until 9.45 so I went for dinner. I ordered the chicken terrine and the seafood linguine. The chicken starter arrived and was so cold it was tasteless, both the chicken and the relish were straight from the fridge. The main, linguine, was over cooked as was the seafood forming a range of various sized pebbles at the bottom of the bowl. The least enjoyable dinner I have had away for some time. Despite mentioning to the waiter, little reaction was gleaned. It was a long day and I was hungry and still had work to do. The house wine was acceptable though.
Breakfast was an enjoyable experience, albeit that I was down early and all was reasonably fresh, i saw no renewals while I dined, which would make me wonder what it would be like come 9 am!
