4/10 Fair

Disappointed with Condition for the Price Point
I was incredibly surprised by the condition of the hotel in comparison the photos and reviews online, especially for what ended up being over $300/night. The hotel itself has some very beautiful areas, but overall my room was run down and in some ways quite dirty. For example, at one point the toilet was not working properly and when I opened the back of it to adjust the tank floater I was shocked that it was covered in mold. The other aspect I struggled with was the carpet in my room. I was not comfortable being in it without shoes on, which is not the expectation I have for a 4 star hotel, or any accommodation at this price point. (Photos attached for reference.) To be honest, if I didn’t arrive so late in the evening after a long day of traveling I probably would have asked for a refund and tried to find another place to stay for this much money. The bright spots for the hotel were the shared areas, which were very nice, and the unique furniture in the rooms. The breakfast was also a lovely addition, and the staff themselves seemed nice and helpful. Overall- bummed at how this experience shaped up for the price point, especially given how good the reviews were on this site :(

good and bad
On the plus side the hotel was lovely and in a great position. The negatives are it is not disability friendly and in our room the toilet did not flush and the shower did not work. No one on reception desk in the evening when we went to complain so we had to wait until morning which was far from ideal.

I got upgraded to a suite and it was really lovely! It looked into the garden and even the smell of the room felt so welcoming! And what a huge bathroom! I loved the style of the hotel, as it was really comfortable and cozy.

A real find.
From the moment of our arrival we were made welcome, being offered refreshments in the lounge, before being shown to our very spacious room. We found crisp linen and fluffy towels waiting for us in the spotlessly clean room which had a very comfortable bed and all necessary facilities. Breakfast was excellent, catering to all dietary needs and was plentiful.
