TBH, I'm disappointed with our choice of this hotel. Having worked in 4/5 star hotels for most of my life, I was expecting more.
I think the basic problem is with the management as the hotel as a large amount (in comparion to European ones) of staff, they are basically inefficient and 'not bothered'
An instance is that we were complaining about an issue with bird poo in our ice, I would instanly expect a manager to appear. It was almost like a negotiation before the Asst Manager appeared even though they were in blatant view of all at the bar - not good!
A litany of problems could be levelled at the management:
cockraches running around the restaurant
asking for ice 6 times before it arrived - with bird poo in it
seafood pasta....without pasta
paella with garlic bread....... yep, you guessed it, wihtout the garlic bread
a torte that was a sponge - huh!
This list goes on.....in other words, don't go spending your hard earned £400+ per night!
