We arrived on our one of two retreats a year on our own,as husband and wife,without the kids.. a rare treat to ourselves. We have stayed her on numerous occassions before, in suits with nice decor,four poster beds,jacuzzi's, fresh linen, nice food and staff..
This was not one of those occassions!! We were given a key, to a disabled accomodating room, with a wet room, awful decor, woodlice ( even on the bed!) cobwebs on light fittings and in corners of the room. A truly awful room. We approached the staff and informed them we were not happy! and asked if there was another room available?!.. Possibly one with a jacuzzi, like the ones we have stayed in before and we were tole "no sorry- the rooms have had the tubs removed,due to safety/weight reasons") We had a drink and checked out the menu and were not too impressed and decided to dine elsewhere. On our return, we went to the bar and the young man serving,tryed to give us in-accurate change, giving us a five pound note, instead of the ten we were due. Luckily we were vigilant enough to notice!! We were un-happy,to say the least. We sat down with our drinks, but soon felt pressured to sit outside with our drinks in the cold, to free the table we were sat at, to diners. We went elsewhere for a few drinks and reluctantly retreated to the room, where we had a very bad nights sleep!!! My husband had a laser light, right next to the bed, shining in his eyes all night. The linen was not fresh. We had breakfast in the morning and thank fully was greeted with more professional, friendly staff. We ate and left promptly. We will not be returning to stay here,which is a shame,as this used to be our favourite retreat.. Superbly disappointing. The highlight of our stay ,was purchasing some beautiful jewelry, for our daughter up-coming birthday! Not quite the retreat we had hoped for!!!
