6/10 Good

This review is fairly irrelevant as it closed for good a few days after we left. I felt sorry for the staff as they were given very little notice. The bar and restaurant were closed during my stay but they did honour the breakfasts that we booked

Good stay untill breakfast
We stayed here with our son who’s 1 year old. In the morning at breakfast we asked for a high chair. One high chair was already being used so they went to get another and nobody appeared back. We asked again and still no high chair. Before we left we asked at reception why nobody came back to us to be told they didn’t have anymore high chairs. This is a large family hotel and could only provide one high chair for the whole place which is shocking. Everything else at the hotel was perfect untill this service and lack of communication and honesty about only having one high chair.
