    A good hotel or a short stay

    We had a comfortable one-night stay at this hotel. The breakfast was good, with a nice mix of hot and col options. We also ate dinner in the hotel restaurant , and enjoyed a well prepared meal. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would recommend it to others.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible customer service

    The hotel rooms are nice but we were given a room on the lower level. We immediately noticed a foul odor and thought it would go away. But it did not. When we opened the faucet, the stench was even worse. We told the receptionist and he came down, noticed the foul odor, but said he was all out of double rooms, which was what we booked. We either had to take a twin room or pay more for a premium room. It is appalling that having given us a problematic room, they would not own up to it and try to squeeze more money out of us.

    Love the dinner (lamb and desert) at the restaurant onsite. The only thing that bothered me was the very strong farm smell. I couldn’t open windows for fresh air.
