We booked in for a romantic night away.
First room was lovely on first inspection. Up close, though, threadbare carpet and chipped furniture. Plus a bathroom door which could not be closed. Cue change of room to a junior suite. This was a free upgrade and was unexpected so full marks for trying.
The spa has all the basic facilities but has an air of a municipal leisure centre, complete with nasty suspended ceiling.
Dinner was problematic. We arrived in the bar 15 minutes before our reservation. Having begged for a drink and then asked for menus we were left there for 40 minutes before being taken to our table.
What I wanted from the menu was unavailable (ditto the bar unfortunately) so making do I chose two very acceptable but minuscule courses. My husband’s pork belly main was, sadly, mainly belly and very little pork.
The following morning was unintentionally hilarious. The pod coffee machine in the room (lovely touch) was so noisy that it prompted banging on the walls from next door. As this was at 7:30 it wasn’t the hour which was indecent just the noise. Breakfast was fine except for soggy toast cocooned in a napkin.
All in all just about OK but for this I would have expected the bill to be about 1/3 less.
Won’t be coming again. More
