We arrived midmorning on a Saturday and were booked in by a surly receptionist. We were unable to see the room and were told to go away till later, with no ideas given about where 'away' might be. No advice or information about the hotel and it's surroundings.
We were directed to leave our luggage and carry on bags which would be put in luggage room.
We managed to locate the waterside bar and pool, actually belonging to the 4* sister hotel next door but used by both. Very cramped area populated by chain smokers but a good view.
Service here was very slow and the only snack available was one type of sandwich, very soggy.
Later we returned to the reception area to find it desterted along with our carry on bags in full view of all the people coming and going.
We did eventually get to our room, very well appointed and comfortable.
Our experience with the reception bar staff did not improve over the week. Housekeeping and restaurant staff were very good indeed The managerial staff were conspicuous by their absence despite a request to see them.
It is advertised as having several restaurants but 2 were closed down.
The hotel was far from full while we were there but the outside areas must be impossible when fully occupied
