We chose this hotel as a result of an offer on Groupon. We had no problem making our reservation as part of the offer. On our arrival we were given a pleasant welcome by the lady at reception & our booking was verified. I was asked to email through a copy of our Groupon offer which was straightforward as free wifi was available in our room. We noticed that an Early Bird menu was available for anyone able to dine before 7pm so we took advantage of this and had a lovely meal. Service was prompt and, although the restaurant was quite busy, our meal arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious. The serving staff were very attentive and pleasant throughout. The next morning we went down for breakfast - which was included in the offer - and the restaurant was quiet-ish. Our order was taken promptly with a choice of breakfasts available. Unfortunately this was probably the low point of our stay as, although the restaurant was quite quiet, it took 45 minutes for two cooked breakfasts to be served. We were initially given tea & coffee but the delay between then & the food arriving was just not acceptable, given our experience the previous evening when the restaurant was almost overflowing. The breakfast, when it did arrive, was quite reasonable - with the only thing that might have been nice would have to have been offered perhaps another egg or rasher of bacon when we said we didn't want black or white pudding or beans, which were included in the breakfast, as standard.
Our room was excellent, well finished, clean & comfortable. The shower is worth a special mention as I adore a strong shower and they really don't come much stronger than this - the term "fireman's hose" comes to mind! It was simply awesome!
So, in conclusion, a lovely stay in all aspects & even breakfast would have been fine provided we had expected it to take an hour & a half.
