Poor stay
The hotel could not find our booking when we arrived, fortunately they did have a room for us. The room was so hot overnight we had to sleep with the window open where an extractor fan ran all night which was noisy but we also had to keep the Dyson fan on in the room to so we had a very restless night.

false advertising/ made to feel very awkward.
The hotel had lost my booking, although they did find me another room. Unfortunately the room I thought I had booked was not as per the description. Showed pictures of a four poster bed and an outside patio area, neither of which it had. When challenged about the misleading pictures , they advised they did have other rooms which fell under the same category which have the aforementioned features. I advised that this was very misleading and to me was false advertising. They made me prove it by loading up both bookings.Com and I asked how they would like to rectify my disappointment and was made to feel as though they had done more than enough as the room rate I’d payed was very good and I should be greatful enough. Didn’t stay for a drink and didn’t go for breakfast as I really didn’t feel welcome.
