To put this into context my stay here was the result of a cancelled flight, however ....
- the staff on the reception desk appear to be quite disorganised with only one of the 4 milling around behind the desk actually doing something
- rooms are basic and in the case of mine I couldn't find a remote for the TV and the radiators heat up very slowly
- lifts to the rooms carry only on person plus a suitcase and are more like on oversized dumb waiter
- this is a popular venue for weddings and, as a result, the sound of the disco travels upwards to the rooms
On the plus side:
- the staff in the restaurant/bar were very friendly
- the food which had been prepared for us after the normal hours of opening was hot and tasty.
