We arrived two hours after check-in time hoping we would get straight into our room. A man behind the desk gave us a room key and just as we started to head out of the foyer to try and find the room, the manager came along and grabbed the key out of my hand and said we wouldn't be in that room and told us to wait in the restaurant. We waited for 15 minutes there and we were then showed up to our room by the same manager - obviously they were running behind and rushing things as there was still rubbish in the bin and mugs that had been previously used. During the night it was cold and found out that our radiator was broken so I went downstairs to let them know, they brought up a portable radiator in 5 minutes which was good. The restaurant is the best place in the hotel with the best wifi as well. The food is delicious but we wont be returning to stay, only to eat.

Such a shame that this property which has the potential to be first class is let down so badly. On arrival our friends who had made their booking by telephone before us were told there was no booking for them. Eventually they were given a room which we reckon previous residents must have forgot to hand back the keys. For the first day and a half there was no room key and for the full time we were there there was no key for the patio door. They were told don’t worry nothing ever gets stolen. They rooms , were on the surface , beautifully decorated and well laid out . But only superficially. On closer inspection there were many small maintenance problems. We were there at the end of the season so perhaps the maintenance will be done over the winter. Cleanliness was a problem with the rooms either not being cleaned at all or only skimmed over. When we complained to the owner we were told you just can’t get the staff. Again it was the end of season so maybe staff were just complacent. The hotel is in a fabulous location although the roads to get there are very narrow and twisty. As I said this hotel has the potential to be excellent if only maintenance and cleaning and management were better.
