8/10 Very good

Great hotel but disappointing service
I was looking forward to staying at the hotel and really wanted to score it high but the service was really disappointing. It's a beautiful boutique hotel in a perfect location next to the old town and buzzy area of bars and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay there. The problem was that when i was trying to call the hotel, the call didn't go through, then when it did it said the call transfer failed and when I got to talk to reservations, the lady told me couldn't transfer the call as she had no such option and I needed to call again. With the 10th attempt, I gave up. We called room service three times on different occassions. Only once they brought what we asked for. The other two times no one bothered and when we called the reception to tell them that nothing had arrived and we were going to sleep they said they were sorry without any attempt to actually chase to deliver what we asked for. We also checked breakfast started at 7am, whereas the guy at the reception insisted it started at 7.30 and then told me to go the bar to check, I told him that he should go and confirm and not sending the guest to sort it out. The service was really disappointing. The only competent person was the bar manager who always greeted us with a smile and ensured we were ok. Long wait for a coffee at breakfast too. I would say, more smiling, more thinking about the guest would help. It's a great hotel as a building though. Very small gym.
