The property was pretty and clean but very plain. The staff at the front desk was pleasant and there was 1 bartender at the tavern who was great but everyone else - AWFUL, rude and miserable people! The other hotel guests were rude as well! I have never been in such an unfriendly atmosphere! Quick example (I traveled alone and was at dinner alone) I asked to sit at the bar because I feel more comfortable sitting there an at a table solo but they wouldn’t let me change my seat because I had booked a table I guess? Oh well. The waitress was very short and rude, seemed annoyed I was alone like she was getting jipped out of a big tip but again oh well. Then I had to use the restroom - mind you I’m mid meal, have a full glass of wine in front of my and my jacket/phone/credit card and clearly at the table (I even mentioned to the cook I was using the bathroom) and the waitress made a huge scene and chased me out to the hall because she thought I was abandoning my meal and leaving without paying.... I don’t even have words for how uncomfortable and embarrassed I felt! When I explained I just “had to pee” she didn’t apologize and continued to say how she thought I was running away. The rest of my stay was filled with similar events and encounters with rude, unfriendly people. Will not be traveling here again!
