Food in restaurant was not up to standard for the price charged. Tiny portions, very overpriced. Asked to speak to the manager, never was able to do this as he never approached us he just spoke to the waitress and ignored us all evening Swimming pool/jacuzzi out of use whilst we was there Wedding was being held - all of the gardens/outdoor area was closed off for this

Other Comments
One meal was inevitable due to the suet pastry bring solid.... unable to cut it let alone eat it. Reimbursed for the meal and drinks not offered on arrival. Bar shut by 10:25 pm due to low number of residents and told we were unable to get further drinks. Room upgrades not offered although discussed with receptionist before and as we arrived even though we were told there were very few residents!!!!!
