I was dining recently in Bracken Court Restaurant along with my girlfriend. The restaurant was very dark inside and we had a problem to read the menu because of that. Waitress who served us was very nice but every time we asked about the menu, she had to go and ask chef. More training would make no harm... Then it... More

A party of 4 of us visited the Bracken Court last Saturday for a birthday meal and overnight stay. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and spacious and the hotel itself is very nice. The small problem we had was the length of time it took to serve our food, on Saturday afternoon we ordered sandwiches in the bar, they took... More

Took advantage of midweek break deal, hotel was fine, staff very friendly , food excellent. Just some small points which although minor could have been avoided. More staff rather than having guests waiting on food etc, with staff who were there doing their best to help. Every time returned to room keycard failed and having to go to reception to... More

We stayed in this hotel prior to flying back to the states. Having to leave early, we went down to the dining room before serving hours, hoping to get something. The waitress kindly made us to go coffees. When the chef found out, he came over and offered to make us egg, sausage, and bacon sandwiches for the road. How... More

All were only to happy to help with our many requests and very professional. I stayed in two rooms and both were excellent, nothing I could find fault in. The Bracken Court is an older... More
