My family and I (all 34 of us) were very disappointed with our stay here for our get together. First we missed the entrance for the hotel as the sign was in among many others and not very clear. Over all the staff were very helpful to the best of their abilities (some were obviously inexperienced),
Rooms clean and comfortable but the wifi didn't work anywhere in the hotel even though our devices were picking it up.
The wrong info was given at the time of booking of a spa treatment deal with our booking.
The overall building just lacked warmth and comfort, The layout of the reception area seemed an after thought, small, cold and directly in front of the entrance door and the bar/ restaurant/ breakfast area was all the same room.
We sat down to our meal on 2 long wooden tables isolated from half the group with no linens or table cloths. This I would have put up with as the food was nice but as we moved to the bar section of the room (feet away and which we filled up) we were disappointed to discover there was no entertainment provided. It was a Saturday night! Then to discover there was no selection of special drinks i.e. cocktails or shots available either. This all topped of by the bar man informing us that the bar is now closing and if we would like to continue our drinks we would have to sit in reception area, order off the night porter who would then bring us our drinks. This happened at no later than 12!
It was safe to say we all had an early night and left the next day feeling sadly very disappointed.
