I rarely feel the need to write a review, but on this occasion I think I need to.
I have mixed feelings about my stay at The Red Door over Easter 2014.
I have worked in the Hotel industry for 26 years, so not easily bluffed.
Restaurant & Food:
I booked my stay on line only 2 days before my stay, there was nowhere to book a table reservation on the booking form, so for 2 days I was calling but never got a reply.
On arrival I was informed that if we wanted to eat it had to be before 6.30pm as no table was available after that time. This is not acceptable service, if I'm spending 120 Euro on a room, I at least expect to be able to dine when I choose.
On the whole I thought the meal was okay, if not a little expensive for what it was.
It was well cooked and tasty, the kitchen team know what they are doing and the service was quick and efficient.
If I was just reviewing the food I would score it a good 3-4 star average.
We stayed in the Le Damask room, described as;
Classic and contemporary blend effortlessly in Le Damask with its elegant damask wallpaper and sophisticated cream furniture. This classic hotel room has everything you need to relax or work and is especially good for business guests.
I think Le Damask is a old room in need of some major refurbishment, with its old furniture in need of replacement, broken glass draw handle on bed side draw.
But the highlight has to be the bathroom, when I first opened the door my jaw dropped, it can only be described as hideous.
The room was extremely hot, and the window didn't open enough to cool it down, it is also right above the bar so very noisy, don't expect any sleep till it closes. We were woken up on Sunday morning by loud country music being played in the restaurant.
To sum up, I was very disappointed with my stay :(
