This is my second trip to a De Vere Village hotel in the past 2 weeks and yet again they have astounded me with their appalling breakfast offering. The hotel in general is pretty good. Friendly staff at reception and in the gym. Room is ok, but way too dark and gloomy. However, the breakfast was appalling. I was met by a lady who grunted to me "what's your room number , do you want tea or coffee". No smile, no " have you had breakfast here before"?. The grapefruit juice was warm, and the toaster was one if those infuriating things that you have to put the toast through twice to get any "toast" on it. However, the English breakfast was truly bad. Cheap overcooked sausages, dried scrambled eggs, horrible stringy greasy bacon swimming in fat, fried eggs floating in grease that were simply dusgusting. The De Vere seems to be targeting itself at the mid-range business hotel. They need to visit the Holiday Inn to see the breakfast offering they have. They are no means brilliant but way out in front of this hotel. Have breakfast at your peril!!
