Idyllic, but even more disappointing.
Posted Sep 17, 2014
Let's get out of the way the one good thing I can say about this hotel... great unlimited, strong free WiFi. Okay, now...I booked this hotel based on the pictures of the location, the concept of it all and the idyllic ambience described in the advert. The village itself was lovely - very quaint and idyllic. In fact, it gave me flashing thoughts of "The Wicker Man" and covens of witches. The room was fine, quaint, clean enough and... ok. The reception was a small section of the bar. Again, fine, but somewhat lacking I though. The bar/restaurant/breakfast room were all kind of cluttered in the way you'd expect an old fisherman's village/hotel to be, so I can't complain about that. The only way I can really describe the overall experience is... "okay"... and that's about it. The only *real* complaints I can muster would be both the restaurant food and the overall service. Suffice to say that - well - I don't like to see the staff who are supposed to be looking after me/serving me standing outside in full view and out the front smoking and chatting with friends. Breakfast was very basic. I was told to help myself but when I opened the containers, there was nothing in two of them. This should be checked regularly and clients shouldn't have to ask. Well, I had to go outside and interrupt the smoking to ask for eggs. The evening dinner in the restaurant was a big disappointment. I have toy say that the food was pretty well below standard.
