Delicious food but service not great
As pleased as we were, we were given the best room for our circumstances, also the room was beautiful, clean and the Inn it’s self was lovely and in a great location, there was a few points on service that let it down. At dinner we were served by multiple people, our drinks order was taken by someone, then our meal order was taken by someone else, 10 minutes later we still hadn’t received our drinks so we had to ask someone else. After our starter we had to consistently ask for cutlery for our main, then again ask with our desert. In the morning before breakfast we phoned reception as we required an iron and didn’t have one in our room, reception told us Housekeeping would be in at 8am and they could ask them but they didn’t think they had any. Which is a bit disappointing when clothes have been in a suitcase and crushed. Breakfast - There was only one girl on service to serve 10 tables and the poor girl was being pulled from pilar to post. We were served our breakfast, was quite a small breakfast and didn’t come with beans and we weren’t offered any sauce, so unfortunately it was pretty dry. We were told that we would need to wait on our toast as there was other orders in but by the time we had finished our breakfast our toast still hadn’t arrived. This is absolutely no reflection on the girl who was on breakfast service she was very pleasant but being honest she could of been doing with some assistance serving 10 tables herself to meet everyone’s needs.
