After reading the hotel website and the reviews on this site we were really looking forward to staying here, however we were very disappointed at the standard of accommodation at the hotel.
Our room was situated between the kitchen and sitting area, with the bedroom door leading straight onto the dining terrace, this location meant that there was constant noise, from all sides. There was open lattice work above the doors and we could lie in bed and hear conversations between the diners and the clinking of their cutlery; the banging and clanking in the kitchen and the guests in the sitting areas. It was impossible to go to asleep until the noise stopped. Although the furniture was lovely there was too much which made the room feel cramped. The bathroom had a cracked shower screen and a disgusting wooden toilet seat!! Not quite the luxurious accommodation we were expecting. The pool was tiny, and only suitable for children to play in. The overall appearance of our bedroom, the sitting areas and garden was scruffy and in need of some TLC. We had dinner one evening and again, given the reputation of the hotel, were looking forward to our meal, and again were disappointed.
Although the staff were friendly, I would not return or recommend the hotel as I am sure there are other places that still retain the character of the building but offer a higher standard of accommodation.
