8 out of 10 | Barbara stayed September 26, 2005

"The person on duty when we arrived was queried as to what was there to do around town and and answered 'not much'. When asked if he could suggest somewhere for dinner replied 'I don't eat restaurant food'. We felt that even if the person on duty wasn't interested in these things there could have been a suggestions list at reception. The lady the next morning was fine. The continental breakfast was fine."
