Well we stayed at this hotel for my birthday treat on the 11th june 2013. this hotel we found on travelzoo to include high tea on arrival and a glass of sparkling wine before dinner and 3 course dinner. first arrival there was no smile from reception staff or hello, in fact we felt we were intruding on their afternoon. the superior room we were given was dark dingy and you felt like being in the basement. We asked for another room and was given another room which just about passed as satisfactory. Then we went down stairs for our creamed tea also included. we ended up with a small scone each watery cream and jam in a small pot along with a pot of tea aledgely worth £17.00 BUT NOT WORTH THE MONEY.Then we came to evening dinner we were shown a set menu which was included and then told no we could not have anything on there as the chef did not have the ingredients. So another menu was given to us. my partner ordered scollops for starter and fish main the scollops were over done as the fish main course and was virtually none edible. my starter course was chicken with salad (chicken pan fried) which was burned and solid you could not cut into it the salad was curling and soggy. Then my main breast of chicken (pan fried) over cooked on the outside but raw on the inside. then for desert my partner ordered creme brelade which was terrible. My opinion the chef on this day was not qualified to be in the kitchen. THE 2 GLASSES OF SPARKLING WINE TO GET BEFORE GOING INTO DINNER WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE IT TOOK 5 VISITS TO THE BAR TO ACHIEVE. And as this was included in the all inclusive well they tried to charge us for the 2 glasses on check out. Now we come to breakfast this was laid out on a large table in heated containers. there was no one available topping up the breakfast for instance no bacon, when the bacon arrived no eggs, no bread to make toast with, no glasses to put orange juice in, breakfast was a fast and when all the ingredients were available they were cold the bacon undercooked watery eggs swimming in oil and still no bread. there was a lot of staff all walking around looking good but not actually doing anything including a posturing restaurant manager who was not in control of his own restaurant (my opinion incompetent) this hotel was worse then you would expect at faulty towers and not recommeded, it spoilt my birthday, the only redemming feature which made my evening was my partner beeing with me and that made me a happy birthday boy. So there is nothing I can recommend about this hotel or its operation, and would never even go into this place for a drink.
