2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
room with very little light, I mean electric light, no bedside lamps, dirty carpet. bathroom without any warning that it has been disinfected. bathtub. the support handles were unclean and I had to clean them. .they laid the bed and took the cups from the room. everything was intact as I left, it is supposed to be a 4 star hotel! towels and bed sheet impeccable but without mattress protector ... which is not normal! very friendly restaurant staff but nothing else ... another remark for those interested, they do not have a tourist guide with what you could see in the area! you have to look for yourself as we did! I'm sorry .I was expecting something else! I would not recommend friends to go! I'm sorry I didn't take the picture at the door in front of my room where a toilet paper was placed on the floor in front of the door and it stayed for hours until the guests came! I haven't met this anywhere before, at a 4-star hotel you expect something else ...

Travelled with family, Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was clean and presentable, but very nothingness. It was a former Hospital, but still feels very much like a Hospital. I know that Covid-19 has affected many things, but I feel the Hotel / House was 'faceless' like a Premier Inn, and that you could be anywhere in the Country. The room was clean & tidy and the pool was nice and warm. The food was OK but nothing to write about. Set in lovely grounds which could be 'made more of'. Nothing bad, but equally quite disapppointed.
