Returned yesterday after a 2 day break, and second visit to this hotel. Overall an enjoyable stay. Food very good, staff friendly and hard working. Wonderful garden views to lake.
Things which need to improve.
Although our room was comfortable(No 19,)carpet needed a good clean.
Poor organisation in restaurant resulted in no orange juice for breakfast on both days......surely that's just basic. Also ran out of glasses and bowls, guests having to ask for both.
Despite dinner being booked for a certain time, kept waiting at least 45 mins before being shown to table, and then had to wait again for starters to appear.
Interesting that when we checked out ,the manager Nichola, didn't even ask if we had enjoyed our stay. When I pointed out the above shortcomings, she really didn't take it on board, or make any goodwill gesture. Not very professional.
Many of these things are fairly basic and minor, but certainly colour the overall experience.
