Staff were excellent in trying to improve overall stay by offering and helping to move rooms. Original room had a continuous low noise - a stop and start - spoke to one of housekeeping in morning as could not sleep. Nothing done or reported by them. My second night’s sleep was excellent. Thank you.

Our room was initially unavailable by ‘guaranteed’ 2pm check-in time. We had decided to stay a second night and discovered our room not made up by mid afternoon. However, we appeared to have fresh towels in the bathroom. That was, until we touched them. Our towels had simply been picked off the floor, folded and put back on the rails. Absolutely disgusting. Reception told us ‘we don’t make up rooms for extending stays’ but this information is not conveyed anywhere. The bed was unmade, the coffee and tea were not replaced. This was ‘because of Covid’…given that all workers and visitors have to be triple vaxxed, this excuse beggars belief. After a trip to reception, we finally had some fresh towels delivered (about an hour later!!) Being a winery, it may have been suitable for someone to gift us a bottle of wine for the abysmal state of affairs, but nothing was offered apart from a future one-night stay. No thanks…a reminder of towels lifted from the floor and hung up as new is enough to put us off returning. Dreadful.
