Dissapointed that the remote setting of the Packwood is not mentioned in marketing information.On arrival after 15minute drive on unsurfaced,unlit road we were informed we could not book for dinner as we had not given prior notice although we arrived at the earliest available book in time of 2.00pm this meant a 30min drive to the nearest restaurant via the unsurfaced, unlit road. As no alternatives were offered we decided not to stay and moved to another location more central. Tha Packwood has a 4 star rating but the service and location did not seem comparable with other 4 star locations we had stayed in.
