Recently spent 2 nights here - we had the Louis room. The room was very large and nicely decorated - opulent and regal. The carpet though was very pale cream - some muddy footprints on it, which took away from the overall feel. The room itself otherwise was spotless.
The large 4 poster bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is small - but had a bath and very powerful over-bath shower. There was a small old-fashioned portable television in the room and tea/coffee making facilities.
We ate both nights in the restaurant but were not that impressed. Service was not great - the second night we waited almost 2 hours before we got our food - made worse by the fact our 4 year old was served about half an hour after we sat down. Thought the food was average - not that bad, but not that great. The poor service we got though meant I would not recommend eating here.
We had booked a fold up bed for our 4 year old when we made the reservation. They forgot, and when we enquired said they had "run out of extra beds" on our first night. Again we were unimpressed with
this - luckily they provided a bed on the second night.
The manager of the bar/restaurant/hotel is very friendly, chatty and helpful, however I thought the rest of the waitresses in the restaurant particularly were a bit surly.
Overall we had a reasonable stay - the room was very nice and the decor was good, however the poor restaurant service, average food and issue with the camp bed means we would not stay here again.
