1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible worst experience ever. Staff member lied to me upon arrival. Tried to stick us in a smaller room than we had paid for without any compensation. Then the manager lied by saying they upgraded the other guests to our room. The hotel wouldn’t correct the mistake even when I told them it’s my 40th birthday, I had paid a lot for the room, we had booked a table in their restuaurant, obviously there to celebrate and spend money. Social distancing rules were not kept, the manager really invaded my personal space even while being nice and apologetic about the situation. The issue was not resolved. I was just given a refund on my 40th birthday and left to party in the smallest room in the hotel. Needless to say we didn’t stay there. Don’t know what it’s like, but I wouldn’t go back with that service. Had to drive 2hrs to the next available hotel. Don’t book here.

The hotel sits in lovely grounds with a river running round it and a walk down to the coast. The main house is very comfortable in a solid way but the fishing lodge room I had was lovely and modern.
