Nice but room for improvement
Nice stay, beautiful scenery, room was comfortable and spacious for 2 adults and two children, food was good but service was a bit chaotic, all the staff very young, very polite but needed to be managed by experienced staff, towels were replaced in the rooms but the beds were not made and no hand soap in the bathroom. Overall I enjoyed the stay but if you advertise as a 4 star hotel and charge the price of a 4 star hotel it can’t be run by teenagers.

6/10 Good

We went for a meal in the bar on the 1st evening. The service was very poor and even though the staff recognised this and offered a free drink which we never got, we were left unattended for 30 minutes post our main meal. A staff member did call to the room as a followup but I felt it was too late and meal was ruined. Our room was not cleaned during our stay. On the 1st day we left it go. On the 2nd day we asked reception twice to ensure this would be done, nothing happened. We had run out of toiletries and had to use public toilet. We called to the desk on our return and eventually it was cleaned. On the positive side the staff in the breakfast room were very attentive and very friendly. I have never filled in a negative review but I hope this review will help the management review training skills for staff. I know that the hospitality service are experiencing shortage of staff but this cannot be used as an excuse .
