    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Overall a good stay, however this time around we felt a real lack of attention and welcoming from staff, particulary the rrception team who struggled to welcome us, shame the welcoming cookies have now gone, this was a lovely touch, it was also lovely to recieve a room upgrade, room and spa was lovely as always, food was good in the bar, however the elderly bar man from the main hotel bar was quite rude to us when we requested a red wine glass to finish our wibe in the room! Also during breakfast the dtaff were congregated around the entrance with one moaning loudly and constantly about another staff member, not good!!, we stayed for three nights and had a few niggles, being in the same industry we understand the lull and staff changeover at this time of year, however the readons for us returning are not consistent and we will not be back.

    Stayed 3 nights in Jan 2020
