The friendliness of the staff
The cooked breakfast was cold and overcooked The bacon was crimated along white the lik sausage and potato scones
Lovely hotel but a bit impersonal. Great pool and gym facilities. Superb location and certainly everything asked for was dealt with courteously and promptly.
Aircon in room was below thermostat and reverted to cold in the absence of manual override. Bathroom window was covered with finger graffiti which showed up on use so clearly had not been cleaned in a while. Breakfast buffet was fine but could have used some daily variety. Total inefficiency with room charging. Tried to charge over the pre-booked rate by some £45 per night.
The oldness had its charm.
The hot tap in bathroom basin should have been fixed as should have room door handle , small things but expect hotel like this to be perfect.
We paid £300 a night, for this I would have expected a more Superior room and facilities. Breakfast was an additional £25 per person( was not worth the £50 we paid after paying £300 per night). No mini bar in the room, no vanity station ( this made getting hair and makeup done a challenge). Back of the hotel hotel view! We did use the pool and spa facilities but was disappointed when no flip flops were offered, or robes.
