Lovely location, disappointing customer service

Lovely location. Reception staff were quite unhelpful with information at check in and needed prompting eg what time is breakfast?, where is breakfast? Where is the lift? etc We stayed on a B&B basis only to find a couple of days later that they offered All Inclusive. This information would have been welcomed at check in, as we would have upgraded our stay but couldn’t when we requested as we had less than 3 days remaining. We had an incident during our stay and all I will say, as a result, is ensure you use the safe in your room for anything valuable. Overall a nice hotel but the management/staff could do with a refresher in customer service.
