Picturesque, but tired
Posted 02/11/2015 on Hotels
Hotel setting and grounds are very picturesque, however in-room entertainment was very poor. I was checked in for a two week stay on Business and tried to stay in the room as little as possible. It's ok for a one night stay, but I wouldn't recommend any longer. TV picture and range of channels is very poor and although there is in room broadband, don't expect to be able to stream any movies (it slows down to a crawl during the evening). During my stay, the broadband ceased to work on a Friday night (I complained) and it took them 4 days to sort it. Apparently I could have used the wired broadband in a lobby area during this time, but the area looked dark and lacked seating. In my case no good anyway as I didn't have an Ethernet cable (which I explained), however hotel obviously don't have any either as they never offered.
Hotel is generally a bit dark and rather tired and although my room was small (single), it was clean and not so tired as the rest of the hotel. I didn't use the restaurant, so can't comment on the food.
I've booked into another hotel for my next two week stay. Much more expensive, but hopefully better wifi and TV (essential for me).
Would have appreciated at least an apology on check out, but nothing was said and nor was I asked how I enjoyed my stay. Overall, rather disappointing.
