we had booked a deluxe spa room, arrived to find Smelly sheets that had obviously been slept in by someone else, room was definitely not 'deluxe'. room was cold, heater didn't work. had meal in restaurant, waited 40 minutes for meal to arrive. Bearing in mind the main courses are not cheap, the quality of the food was appalling, ordered sirloin steak which looked more like the sole of a shoe had dropped off. sent steak back and ordered chicken which was supposed to be served with risotto. Definitely not risotto, just rice which was not cooked properly, and not particularly warm. We ended up eating separately. we were told there was normally a sous chef and a head chef but today there was a new chef!!! We sat next to 2 guys who both also complained about their meals. this totally ruined a night away for us which was supposed to be a surprise. Will never go back again - ever!! Staff were pleasant enough, and felt for the waitresses in the restaurant with so many people complaining about the food.
