We stayed here one night as we were touring around the area. It looked pretty, but the careful restoration of the place was totally spoilt by the attitude of the staff.
We were woken very early the following morning by the caretaker banging on our door and shouting for us to get up as he wanted to come in to use the connecting door in our room to get into the adjoining room. He wouldn't go away. It was actually quite scary as the guy isn't exactly friendly and he wouldn't say why he wanted to get in our room.
We only knew he was the caretaker as the previous evening we had returned from dinner to find him and two other caretaker-type staff in our room standing around drinking beers and allegedly fiddling with the TV (as far as I was aware there had been nothing wrong with it). Not very nice really, and very unprofessional.
Basically this place is like something out of Fawlty Towers in the way it is run. It's a shame.
Also the rooms are not all ensuite. And we asked for a second bed but was told we couldn't as they only had one spare and it was being used already. Customer service isn't their strong point.
