Lunch with friends was not as good as it used to be at the hotel. The main courses have been going down hill over the last few visits. Sauce's getting watery and bland among other things. We asked for the soup of the day and the special on the board, informed those were from another day and not available! On... More

I must say... More

Well what can I say. It was like walking back into the 80s. I used to be takin here by my parents and it didn't look like it had changed one bit. Now its art deco but surely dust isn't. Severe lack of any atmosphere as we were the only ones there. Drinks too forever to come but food came... More

Came here for food a few weeks ago and it was lovely. Had 3 courses each and couldn't fault anything..I would recommend the nachos to share for a starter,so good! The staff were all friendly and we didn't wait too long for any of our courses. Will definitely be returning soon..

I went to the Northern Hotel with my friend for lunch, the service is very good, we did not wait long for our order to be taken. The meal arrived and it was a very big portion as well. The staff are really good and nothing is a problem to them. I will definitely go back agian.

The hotel was booked by a third party for a large group of us staying one night, Saturday, in February. My husband and I shared a twin room (at our request) which was spacious and clean but the decorations and fixtures were outdated. Large bathroom, again clean but basic. The hotel is over three floors with a lift that will... More
