    Disappointing

    Room was nice apart from TV didn’t work properly, Milk in the room was off , no plug for the bath or hairdryer or bottled water as stated . Wasn’t told or asked if we had parked ok luckily a gentleman out the back told us where to park and gave us the code . Service at breakfast was disappointing , lady serving was on her own and clearly needed help and came across as unapproachable when asking for anything!
