sleeping on the door step beware returning late
Had a family dinner in town returned with my 2 children to the hotel after 1am to find the front door locked and no night porter. Unable to raise any staff. Ended up walking 500mts to the fence gate to wake a staff member by banging on the door. My brother returned to the fence gate lodge an hour later than us and ended up having to sleep on the hotel door step until kitchen staff arrived at 6am. When i discussed with the front desk the next morning the girl said they were short staffed and apologised. I asked if she thought a guest of a 5 star hotel should have to sleep on the porch...she just shrugged and said she would speak to her manager and call me...i am still waiting for the call...i gave them the chance to make amends but their managerial customer service was dreadful. The only redeeming thing was the breakfast and the serving staff, very helpful. I'm a gold member of and in normal non covid times would buy upwards of 250 rooms per year. Never ever have had to sleep on the door step of a hotel before....because of a night porter shortage! Beware returning late to this hotel, make sure you have a front door key! We laugh about it now but wasnt funny at the time with a wife and 2 kids crying with fatigue!

Couples night away
Lovely little hotel and a wonderful girl on the night staff but we had an angular sleep. The bedding was synthetic and the room was so hot. We had windows open but was on a corner so no air flow, and it rained and there must have been a drain pipe by the window as it was so loud. We also had fans and nothing helped when you have hot bedding. I barely got any sleep at all
