Travelled with fairly large family party , Majority of staff friendly but did have some surly eastern european staff not so friendly.
Decor and surroundings dated and tired well overdue a refit by about 20 years !
Room was average , poor furniture and again tired and needs investment
We stayed 3 nights and every night there was a private function using the hotel
Bar prices we considered high at £ 5.70 per glass of wine but not on its own there I guess
Very much a coach party hotel and this is reflected in the average age of client 65 +
Biggest problem for myself was the food everything pre prepared and old fashioned uninspired dishes , whilst not offensive , why do a 4 course meal badly should concentrate on 3 courses and improve the quality , we were booked for evening meal and to order a steak was a £14.95 supplement !! How do these hotels keep getting away with it , then claim tourists aren`t holidaying in England.
Bar food was better than standard evening meal choices
MUST TRY HARDER Livermead you are way behind others are doing it better
My final gripe is that the Livermead is part of a small group of hotels and the facilities they list on the website are actually at other hotels , sorry but you dont put your trunks on to catch the bus and jump in the jacuzzi down the road anymore ! Check what this actual hotel does have prior to booking.
