Worse of all no hot water for 7.15 am shower or bath for child at 8pm. Front desk did apologize every day... More

We've had many meals here at the Hatfield, but this Sunday the roast was terrible, vegetables mushy and roast potatoes were impossible to cut, the meat was also tough and fatty. Normally the steaks and burgers ect are very good., but we won't be returning for a roast though. However there is a man called "Gav" the manager I think... More
