8/10 Very good

Bad reception service
Booked a luxury room with a single and double bed. The room only had a king size bed, we asked reception to change it and they said they would. We went to the bar, then went back to the room before dinner and the nothing had been changed. We rang reception again and they sent 2 people over who told us you can have 2 bed in the apartment. I showed them the booking that said a double and single bed included. They then said call reception which we did again and they said they’d take care of it. When we returned after dinner it wasn’t change so I slept on the sofa. I’ve stayed there before with wife and kids with 3 beds in a room so they clearer just couldn’t be bothered. I must say all staff at the bar, restaurants, wine tasting and hotel porters were excellent though.

Very helpful staff
Arrived fairly late in the afternoon and we were unaware of the Wine tasting included in the hotel price. The receptionist called the Wine tasting and they fitted us last minute. Very considerate and helpful staff.
