the toilet seat was broken , when we reported this they said they would inform maintenance, although they had dining rooms we had to go over the road to there sister hotel for our evening meal which we were overcharged for, on getting back to our hotel the toilet had not been fixed and we had to go to reception for a second time , we were told that they would move us to the sister hotel across the road, we had no help in moving just told to go over to the other hotel we were told we could have a complimentary night at another time but were given nothing the bill was not reduced , the toaster at breakfast was broken and they didn't seem bothered to fix it this is not what I expected for the money paid I have had far better service in bed and breakfast

ok for 1 night
On arrival, the hotel does not match the pictures on site. We are still to find the lake with the boats! Staff are ok, but only see two people in the whole building. Went down to the bar, where we were told we needed to use the facilities at their sister hotel, a 10 minutes walk over the road. We arrived back at our hotel room at 11pm, it was so quiet, the receptionist was talking to a “friend” and when asked if we could get a drink we were told “no” whilst he laughed at us. Neighbours were so loud from 7am this morning. Staff knocking on their door to hand things over, with total disregard for other people that were sleeping. I don’t know if it was just a one off, but I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone!
