Wonderful hotel in a beautiful location.
Posted Apr 5, 2017
We chose this historic hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary as this was an area we had not visited for many years. We were greeted warmly at reception, assisted with our luggage to our room and the tea/coffee making equipment was pointed out together with the fridge and the fresh milk. The room was large and comfortable overlooking the swimming pool and both the bedroom and bathroom were clean, although the drawers were difficult to open and close.
We had time to spare before dinner and went for a walk in the grounds as it was a lovely afternoon. We were disappointed in the condition of the gardens, felt they needed more attention and the grass needed cutting.
We had pre-booked our meal at the Grill and when we arrived there were only two tables of two occupied, the dinning room having just opened. I chose sea bass and the waiter had to check there was a portion left, there was, but the following diners were disappointed as not only was there no bass but no cod either, when it came to the dessert they had run out of ice cream too. We felt that just serving salad and salsa was limited and there was only one waiter on duty for the majority of the evening.
On the second evening were ate in the main dinning room and were seated in the bar where we chose our food whilst having a drink. We were shown to our table and enjoyed the food immensely the only problem being a wait of at least half an hour for our main course, the staff did apologise but it did spoil the experience
