Hotel grounds beautiful, but experience dissapoint

Pros: I loved the grounds. And that the sister company next door was available as well. It is a very nice facility for families as far as outside is concern
Cons: dish wash liquid in kitchen so sinks and counters can be cleaned if needed. Have furniture that is comfortable, and bedding that looks clean and comfo
Location: Theres plenty to do in the summer spring and fall seasons. Winter season very limited.
Our room was very dissapointing. There were no chairs inside the room only a couch that was so uncomfortable that it actually hurt to sit on it (it was stained/dirty looking);. The only table and chairs were on the balcony which would have been fine in beautiful weather, but in november when the weather is cooler and windy and rainy, that was not the place to be sitting for a meal and freeze. There was a small bar that had two stools to eat at, however the stools were so short my husband and i sat so low that the counter level was at our throats and we felt like small children who needed a booster seat. There was no cleaning supplies at all to wash up dishes or counters. Theres no maid service, so our wet dirty towels laid in the floors for the four days we were there, there was no adequate place to put them or trad them for more. We did call for some when we ran out and they brought us more, but did not take away the wet ones. And lastly the bedspread and pillow shams on the bed was filthy looking, which does not make you feel the room or bed for that matter was clean. and the baseboards and wall in the bathroom was filthy and hadnt been mopped apropriately. Honestly we stayed at a hamptom inn on the way down that was immaculate, and a bestwestern on the way home that was immaculate and were much less that what we paid for there. I expect my room to be clean and comfortable, especially when the weather is not good, and you end up spending much more time in the room than norm
