Staff Friendly and Food good. Had a 5 night stay. Just too many issues for 1 stay. 1st night the Bathroom light reported next morning. Came back from work - not fixed had to change rooms. Then when ordering food it takes an hour and more to be delivered to my room. Then last night TV not picking up signal - reported 3 time in 2 hours not fixed. My experience negative - one just don't want to keep on having one issue after the other.

Beautif restaurant and trained people. Bar can be crowded but no fights.

review by William Helm

"Hidden Gem"

When I recently visited the inn My expectations of the place was exceeded! This is a beautiful place, but still needs a few improvements. Upon our arrival the staff were lounging about in the dining room/entrance, the receptionist was not very friendly with his greeting. The bedroom was stunning but there was no bath mat available, the coffee station seemed to be used and there was only one coffee cup available for my partner and I and the aircon leaked straight onto my head whilst I was sleeping (not pleasant at all!!). The food was also good but took an hour to arrive (only order a burger and a toasted sandwich and another couple had also waited more than an hour). The next morning I was very disappointed when housekeeping staff started talking really loud in the passage therefore waking me up too early for my liking. All this said I still believe this place has a fantastic potential if the few mentioned things were improved.
