My wife and I arrived at 1930ish on a Wednesday evening to be informed no food available. On our first morning my wife received a snotty call at 1130 asking what time we were leaving as checkout is at 1100, my wife's answer was were here for 2 nights! In the afternoon we decided to order a nice cream tea and sandwich selection from the bars menu to which we were told sorry you need to give us 2 days notice! On arrival we were told breakfast was 0700 to 1000 and as we arrived at breakfast at 0925 on the sevond morning a snotty waiter informed my that breakfast finishes at 0930! All in all just let down a bit by the poor customers service provided.
