Good Bones, Bad Dress
Posted Oct 11, 2015
This is listed as a four star hotel but that is grade inflation. There are some elements that might lift it out of the 3 category, but when everything is added together this is no higher than a 3. Two of the three staff at the front desk were far less than helpful or welcoming. The rooms are very similar to a well kept very average motel in the US, nothing at all fancy or luxurious. The restaurant was all right, also a clear 3 with plastic place mats and paper napkins. It isn't that the food was bad, it was simply average.
The bones of the old abbey are there in plain view but the rest is Holiday Inn.
