Walkerbouts Inn is a beautiful, rustic hotel situated high in the village of Rhodes. It has old style charm, great food and a great pub called Thankshalot! The owner, Dave looks like a real life Father Christmas. The rooms were comfortable, the food was great (Pizza) and personal service all round. Will definitely recommend this hotel!

Although we had phoned days before arrival to book for 10 people the manager never even appeared once during our 2 hour stay. Unfortunately this sad management from the owners attitude permeated throughout the staff, who were totally disinterested in our arrival.Although we were the only guests there, we quickly realized if we wanted to have lunch at all we had better get the orders in quickly as it was apparent service was not on the top of the list! We managed to revive the barman and even got a glimner of service after 20 minutes but the kitchen took more convincing. Two pizzas appeared and at the insistence of our friends we sstarted with our mediocre pizzas. After 30 minutes one of our friends went to enquire what had happened to the rest of the order? Only apon threatening to cancel the other oizzaz appeared in quicker succession. Such disappointment.

Good morning CMLFO, I must apologize most profusely for your unfortunate experience and disappointment. The staff behaviour was completely unacceptable. I have discussed the problem with the staff members concerned, emphasizing the fact that customer service is of paramount importance and all the more so in these trying times. In all fairness, our pizza bases are pre-prepared and require defrosting during the preparation process. This slows the production rate somewhat, especially for bigger groups. However, this is no excuse for the staff attitude and tardy service. Bearing the future in mind with a view to improving our product, it would be appreciated if you would care to clarify “mediocre pizzas”. Exactly what seemed to be the problem in this regard? Should you care to visit Walkerbouts again, it would be my pleasure to provide you with a pizza free of charge for comparison with the recent travesty. Stay well. Cheers, Dave.
