Check in time is 14.30 and they do stick rigidly to it. There is a bar area to sit in to wait and have a drink. There seem to be a lot of coach tours to the hotel, so it was pretty full in the bar when we arrived. We werent lucky enough to have a refurbished room, but it... More

Stayed at this hotel 26th June till 28th with my daughter and granddaughter. There were quite a few more members in our party as there were the world freestyle competitions on at winter gardens. I found hotel to be extremely clean with staff who could not do enough for you. The gentleman who ran restaurant got up at six o... More

Great memory has james, and the food was just as we remembered... More

Staff were brilliant, room was a little hot but I asked for a fan and they brought one up straight away. Food was very good with excellent service. Entertainment... More

On the 28th June we held another fund-raising lunch for 60 people at the Doric (we've held 3 a year there for the last 25+ years!). As usual, it was superb. Jason and James (the Restaurant Manager) arrange everything for us. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. All the staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful. We... More

My partner and I stayed at the hotel from the 19th to the 21st of this month. There was a slight hiccup at the start of the stay when we arrived in our room and it was NOTHING like the pictures on the website, however when we called reception to enquire about the possibility of changing rooms they were more...

The Doric is waiting to see if they have any rooms available after the coach gives its numbers. It's a shame we... More

My second visit to the Doric, but possibly the last! Sadly "trip adviser family hotel of 2015" has, to me spoiled this lovely place. The evening entertainment was ruined by unruly children running all around the dance floor, trying to disrupt the artists performing and then the dancers dancing. The female parents of said children sadly joined in by prancing... More
