I should point out that I did not stay in the hotel, just had a drink and a meal on two occasions recently. The bar and eating area are pleasant and clean, spacious and comfortable, The food is good quality and fairly reasonably priced. The service is friendly and timely. The one thing that bothers me is (and I can't describe this without being personal I'm afraid) the lady who runs it. She's seemed to spend all her time during both my visits either micro-managing or more often talking, while simultaneously describing how she had no time available. OK, that's part of the job but some of the talking contained deprecating, even very rude observations about (fortunately absent) customers, personal financial / business information and even snide remarks about her staff (who she, with staggering irony, described as "backstabbing"). All the above was broadcast at teeth-grinding length to all present in a loud tone that managed to be both dreary and grating. Now, I really don't want to talk like this about anyone, but it's merely a fair and true observation and it really is a case of "if you can't take criticism, don't dish it out," It did not make for a pleasant or relaxed atmosphere and is offered up simply as a potential area for improvement.
