Prior to joining a hotel guest for a drink in the evening at St Mellons hotel and to watch some football I checked this site for it's reviews and when I was driving down the lane to the hotel I had a startling reminder of the manager's reply to the latest review one day ago. I drove the lane as if on a slalom, the potholes were many and varied designed to wrip your tyres off, I had to zig-zag all the way down the lane. The manager had reported that the lane was now smooth after repairs had been carried out, his version of smooth must be the opposite to mine, there were no signs of new tarmacadam anywhere unless they'd repaired only the bottom of the crevasses.
On a positive note the leisure bar was comfortable and friendly, the last time I was here there were stools at the bar and it would have been nice to sit at the bar on some stools but on enquiring to the bar staff where the stools were, they informed us that the manager has had the stools removed, that must be why he walks in a strange way.
