We booked four rooms for a family get together on the Bank Holiday weekend. Firstly the good bits - the breakfast was good quality and loads of staff so really efficient and the bedrooms were big and clean. The rest though was disappointing. The male bar staff were unfriendly (the female friendly) and not staffed all the time so it took us 30 minutes to get a drink (after 3 chases to reception) and no bar food on Sunday afternoon when its raining outside. There was no pool table although it is advertised and the snooker table is in the basement which smells of damp and mildew and so unusable. The shower in the bathrooms need a degree in mechanical engineering to work and then no pressure on the water. All in all disappointing when simple updating could make it a decent hotel.
