An average hotel, excellent location for the town centre and to be honest not too far to walk to the gorge. The bar / evening restuarant is excellent and the chef and staff are clearly all there to serve. That said, the weekend breakfast was a totally different matter - a disgrace. Self service buffet with very poor replenishment and the scrambled egg: well you'd have though the chef would get the hint when the only thing left is the untouched scrambled egg!!! nuff said. Housekeeping is intermittent in standards, clearly much above making the bed is asking too much.
And the usual restuarant bar staff, who are excellent (- can't remember his name but he's welcomiing without being over-friendly and talkative if you want to be) are either on holdiay or have left, because the two idiots who were on last night lost the plot and it all went to peices. It was like a 'gotcha' TV comedy show as they over-compensated for their inability.
Check-in are very helpful. normal bar / resturant staff are excellent and the chef (in the evenings is superb). Bar / restuarant staff last night should be shot. And whoever cooks breakfast at the weekend should be ashamed to call themselves a cook, let alone aspire to being called chef. The worst breakfast I've eaten in a hotel (and there's been many!) in a very very long time.
So, I wouldn't not stay here, just take it as you find it and go somewhere else for your weekend breakfast.
