We expected more from this hotel. I have tried to contact the hotel but I have received no feedback as of yet. Disappointing to be honest.

We had difficulty opening the door on our first room and after 3 different cards we were given another room. Not once was we offered help by a member of staff to help us get into our room. The Jacuzzi was not working in the spa and we only found only found out when we were in the spa its self.The dinner experience reminder us both of being on holiday and being in a full board restaurant, the lighting was too bright and we had to ask where both our starters and main course was. The food could of been of a higher standard and the burger I ordered I could of made myself at home. At breakfast we had to ask for clean glasses and where our tea and coffee was more than once. When we checked out we were not even asked how our stay was and all the staff wanted to know if we had a bill to settle. We only went to this hotel on the back on family and friends recommendations who had a really good stay and commented on how good the food was. We were looking at this venue for our weeding but sadly no

Other Comments
The tv in the room was quite small. We would have appreciated two comfy chairs one for each but only one was in the room. The spa area was disappointing, the lighting was poor in the spa and lots of children jumping into the pool!!!! not good for 4 star the Jacuzzi out of order all the time we were there.
