4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
On arrival at 19.00hrs, there was nobody at reception. Our key was left out for us.We booked the Superior Double Room but were allocated one of the Standard twin rooms. We spoke to the Waiter, who was as helpfull as possible, but he wanted us to wait until the morning to change rooms. But I insisted on receiving the room I booked, which he finally managed to organize for us. We were very disapointed with our meal on the first night. We understand that it is Covid but they could of least given a choice of main course. Ours was a chicken leg with pasta & veg. The breakfast at the Baren is very good and the dinner on Sat night was excellant. We were given a menu with a choice of main course. It was Valentines night and the tables were beautifully decorated. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.
