All I can say is this is the most mediocre unenjoyable hotel I have ever had the displeasure of staying in!
We arrived to a pretty cold receptionist and manageress who offered no help with our heavy luggage, we had meals on both nights which were barely warm and hardly befitting the excessive price tag and the rooms look like they have been lifted straight out of Del Boy Trotters bedroom in Only Fools and Horses!
This was however a lovely location, it is a huge shame though that we overslept on both days we were there. We were kept awake on both nights until around 3-4am by the young man (a manager at the hotel) playing piano and attempting to sing Sinatra as loud as he could in what can only described as Sinatra after going on a 6 month bender in which he sold half his vocal chords for whiskey!!
I am not exaggerating. Music should not be played this loud this late to a bar consisting of a just the owner, his family and a couple of his friends!
We complained on the second night to a very disgruntled night manager named Paul who seemed thoroughly angry that he would have to stop the "music" at 3.45 in the morning!! Finally it stopped half way through a second call to reception at around 4am.
My complaint in the morning was met with a ludicrous reply of "sometimes there is music played late for the guests, it is advertised that we have a piano bar"
I have never felt so much like I had wasted my money and one of the few weekends I get to spend away with my family! For a family hotel where people like myself come with young children this rudeness and inability to allow guests to sleep is just disgraceful!
