  • 6,0.Good

    Surprised and disappointed.

    The food was delicious! But the room and bathroom were dirty as in a long time unused room can be, dusty etc..., the bathroom was uncomfortably freezing for some reason. We had to keep the door closed to control the room temperature and could barely stay too long in it. The fridge and radiator were very loud when they were activated. Not a peaceful experience. Not a luxurious one, either.

    Excellent service, great amenities

    The outdoor hot tub was my far our favorite part! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Dinner was delicious, although the burger was way overcooked for my tastes. The bed in our room was wonderfully comfortable. My advice would be to ask for explicit directions from the staff when trying to find the pool/outdoor hot tub.

  • 4,0.Fair

    The property was pretty and clean but very plain. The staff at the front desk was pleasant and there was 1 bartender at the tavern who was great but everyone else - AWFUL, rude and miserable people! The other hotel guests were rude as well! I have never been in such an unfriendly atmosphere! Quick example (I traveled alone and was at dinner alone) I asked to sit at the bar because I feel more comfortable sitting there an at a table solo but they wouldn’t let me change my seat because I had booked a table I guess? Oh well. The waitress was very short and rude, seemed annoyed I was alone like she was getting jipped out of a big tip but again oh well. Then I had to use the restroom - mind you I’m mid meal, have a full glass of wine in front of my and my jacket/phone/credit card and clearly at the table (I even mentioned to the cook I was using the bathroom) and the waitress made a huge scene and chased me out to the hall because she thought I was abandoning my meal and leaving without paying.... I don’t even have words for how uncomfortable and embarrassed I felt! When I explained I just “had to pee” she didn’t apologize and continued to say how she thought I was running away. The rest of my stay was filled with similar events and encounters with rude, unfriendly people. Will not be traveling here again!
