I've stayed here twice now, the first time I ate elsewhere with clients and skipped breakfast - the service was good from reception and th room was confortable and clean if a little dated.
This time around I was given an upgrate to an executive room. As before it's clean adn comfortable the exec bit means a bigger room with a settee and a bigger bathroom, with, of all things, a bidet!!!
I did eat here this time and to be honest the menu and food is a bit rubbish. No steak on the menu, just sliced roast sirloin with various sauces and vegetables - very very dated and no dessert menu?!?!?!?
Breakfast though, was absolute bobbins. £9.75 for a full english breaskfast including the continental buffet - the buffet just had some plasticy croissants and some supermarket low fat yogurt (still in it's supermarket carton). The full english was crap. 1 egg that was over cooked sitting on top of 1 piece of fried bread. 1 sausage - not even a tasty sausage, a frozen sawdusty one. 2 rashers of back bacon that looked nad tasted deep fried, same with the mushrooms - very greasy. and a cooked tomato. for £9.75????????? If you need to stay in the area stay in the Bell at Hornden on the hill. The rooms are cheaper (between 50 and 75) and the breakfast rocks - cheaper, more choice with the sort of fresh local produce you'd expect to get if you paid a tenner, but for much less.
I'd stay again but only if I couldn't get in anywhere else and I would eat elsewhere.
Oh and as I type it's 8am and some sort of maintenance is being carried out downstairs so loudly I've had to cancel a planned call this morning!!
ask for a second floor room as should keep the noise of other guests to a minimum
