We stayed for 3 nights on a Groupon deal and had dinner on 2 of the 3 nights included. The first night was excellent and we could not fault the food. Unfortunately, on the 2nd night it was the chef's day off and "someone else from the hotel" was cooking. Lasagne & chips! Although it was okay, what a let down from the previous meal. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't do enough. The room was a good size and was very clean. The grounds of the hotel and the views from the hotel are lovely and we enjoyed sitting outside with a drink. We were fortunate to have sunny weather and this was a great place to base ourselves as there is a lot to do in the surrounding area for both grown ups and children.
But, the bathroom was dreadful. It had a suite approx 50 years old (not kidding - bathrooms are what I do for a living). There was no shower facility at all, which was difficult with 2 adults and a 14 year old girl sharing the room (two females with long hair). When I asked at reception for a push on hose fitting for the taps, they immediately offered the use of the room across the hall which had a shower, all be it almost as old as our bathroom, but it was a vast improvement.
We would got back to this hotel, but not until the owner puts his hand in his pocket and sorts out the bathrooms.
