We stayed here to celebrate a wedding anniversary with toddler in tow. First impressions- reception efficient, even offered to carry our bags up for us. The room lacked much daylight- looking out of the (tiny) window the other rooms seemed similar.
Other than that, only gripes were that the remote control was a bit ancient and the shower dripped continuously.
Spa, gym and swimming pool were excellent and the changing rooms first rate!.
The area that the hotel does fall down on is restaurant service. We booked a 7pm dinner both nights, first night OK but second night no record of us. Not that it mattered because on both nights there were only one or two other tables occupied.
This was probably just as well as the staff seemed incapable of serving even this number of people in the required timeframe! We sat down at 7, by 7.30 a menu had been left and all staff seemed to have left too, we ended up bringing my daughter juice from our room so she could at least get a drink.
Eventually someone rolled up and took the order, disappeared again, about 8.00 our starters arrived (volcanically hot soup for a toddler- great deal of thought there). Main courses hit the table about 8.30, at 9pm our plates hadn't even been cleared and the waitress appeared more interested in rearranging the cutlery in her drawer. We finally left before dessert as my daughter had had enough, and so had we. In the end I gave the order to the waitress and asked her to bring it to our room as I felt that we'd waited long enough. It eventually arrived in our room with ice cream mostly melted.
In summary if you like good hotel facilities you'll enjoy it, but do yourselves a favour and avoid the restaurant like the plague.
