Stayed in this hotel for a wedding being held at the golf club. Plenty of parking in the car park. Not the nicest welcome, two receptionists on, the one sitting down didn't even glance up and smile, the one serving me made me feel that she was doing me a favour serving me. Normally when you are handed the key to your room, you are actually told where the room is. I had to ask!
The room was small but very nice, clean and everything worked. The hotel supply a shuttle bus if you are attending a function at the golf club, which is a mile down the road. It's a great service, you ask reception and they call the club and the bus arrives within 10 minutes. Albert picked us up and took us and told us just to ask when we wanted to go back to the hotel. I have to give him a special mention, that man worked so hard all night, behind the bar, clearing tables and driving the bus!
Breakfast the next morning was self service and was nice and plentiful. The same lady who had been on reception was working in the restaurant area so perhaps she is just very overworked and doesn't have time for pleasantries . Note: from previous reviewers, the TV is not now on in the morning at breakfast.
Overall this is a nice hotel, reasonably priced and with good facilities. Note for the hotel manager though, I do think you could save a bit of money by not having the heating on so frequently. The hotel, and the rooms were very hot, and all the guests were saying so.
