    “Less than satisfactory service from staff and qual”

    The bedroom lock was broken, no solution offered by staff to resolve this. It was clear the problem with the lock was known by staff. We were left to struggle gaining access to the room.

    Reception staff were not proactive or helpful in offering information re local area.

    Breakfast staff were very hospitable and attentive.

    This is a PUB with rooms NOT a hotel and we feel that the room rate was extortionate and unreasonable in view of this. Bedroom corridoor walls were scuffed and in need of a re-paint.

    Very disappointing place to stay. We would not return. Not yet standard that we would expect from a MacDonald hotel!
