Traveled with partner
This hotel did not have a separate area for non-residents dining/drinking, therefore it was impossible to enjoy the facilities. As it was extremely warm in the bar, we wanted to have a seat outside for drinks, however, we could not get a table outside for drinks as it was used as a local drinking bar and was full of people. The toilet facilities inside were also open to everybody drinking and dining outside and were not very clean. This definitely made us feel like the residents were not the priority and we were disappointed with our stay which is unfortunate because it is a lovely hotel and the food in the restaurant was very good. We would not stay here again if this issue was not addressed.
