2/10 Poor

Not what is advertised
Absolutely not what is advertised. Waiters service excellent. Food not bad. We were refunded. Conditions of room is dirty and their were holes in bedding. Old candle with burnt matches lying in the room. The buildings are tired. You may not use the lawn by the river unless a picnic is booked. Bedding not premium. It has so much potential but if not seriously upgraded like broken chairs and hotel carpet in reception filthy it wont be open foe long.
