  • Liked: Property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Loved the room, hot tub, spa bath. Went for dinner and were incredibly disappointed. Met two friends who had arrived at the restaurant before us. They had gone there for dinner at a pm and were waiting until 8:40. We arrived at 8:20 aand waited until 8:45 for a bottle of wine. Our friends mushroom soup arrived around 9pm which was a little awkward. Our pre-dinnet bread rolls did not arrive until around half qn hour after that. The mains for both parties suprisingly came out at the same time -despite the different ordering times. Again, over an hour and an hour and a halr before the were served. These rooms were lovely - however 5he service is terrible, and i am still waiting to hear about a Swarovski earring that whould have been found when cleaning. Again, the rooms are great but be careful as there are many stairs to focus on and the lights are a bit unreliable. Apologies for the review, however dinner was unacceptable.
