2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service
Disappointing
This is no longer Allium, though taken over 2 months before our stay, all the emails from the booking site were still referring toAllium. There was no mention of steep stone steps up to the room, not good for the disabled, especially when wet. There were several problems. The tv remote needed new batteries, we had only half a toilet roll, both were put right quickly when pointed out. Breakfast bought up to the room at the time requested was excellent, muesli, yogurt, fruit, toast and honey. But arriving back late afternoon no one had been in the room. The breakfast dishes were still there and nothing, including the bed had been touched. The pub was lovely and the food very good. The new management of the now Beehive Pub really to get their act together.

Disliked: Staff & service
We travelled to this property late on Saturday night. On arrival, we were shown to our room which was cold. We managed to get some food brought to our room and arranged for breakfast to be delivered by 9am the following morn. A Beatles tribute band was playing until 11pm which we were only warned about on Saturday morning and there was continuous noise throughout the night, with music at 3.47am. We stayed until 10am to wait for our breakfast that didn’t arrive. Totally disappointed with the accommodation which is not called Alium but The Beehive!!!! Not what was expected at all.
