Location, clean, friendly staff
The rooms didn’t look like the ones in their photos so it was disappointing given the price. The pillows were hard, foam ones that made sleeping difficult. I asked if they had any other pillows and they said no. The staff ranged from helpful to acting like we were bothering them if we asked a question. Had to park around the corner in a lot with a chain and combination lock that took some fiddling every time we came and went. Surely they could come up with a better system.
No lift. Small room. Dining room staff in the evening were unfriendly. Had to ask the waitress if she would take our order. She deemed it more important to clear a table than serve the customers. Food seemed as if it had been left under the hot lamp too long and was difficult to chew. Was unwilling to complain due to the attitude of the staff and I have seen what happens to food that has been returned to the kitchen. Being elderly and feeling vulnerable we accepted it.
Superb breakfast with really good choices and superbly cooked hot dishes. We would like to make a special mention of Joan our breakfast waitress. She made us feel at home and really welcome! The evening meals were also excellent - with great service.
The bar was a little disappointing, but there are plenty of alternatives!
En-suite was very tight.
