Disappointing A review of White Elephant
A pretty enough place, and clean, but just-average, overpriced food and poor service dimmed our time there. We had booked a particular cottage, for a special occassion, and we were assigned it when we checked in. But it wasn't ready yet, so we took a walk around town--and returned to find it had been given to someone else. A woman at the front desk insisted we must have been mistaken -- little realizing we had just overheard her scream loudly at someone in the back room for giving it away. The cottage we we're given instead just wasn't as nice, by a long shot, but it was more the staff's ill-humour --the hotel was fully booked and everyone from the gardener to the restaurant manager seemed stressed-out and grouchy -- that made us not really interested in returning. This is priced like a Ritz, and run a bit more like a Howard Johnsons.
