Having arrived at 2.50pm I expected my room to be ready but it wasn't. After waiting 20/25mins I was given a different room as mine still wasn't ready. Going to the bar to meet my friends for a drink was a problem as we couldn't get a drink because the Bar was 6 deep with people waiting to be served. Only 2 Barmen on duty serving mainly cocktails.
Went to the Christmas Party in the George Suite (should have been the Kings Hall as that's what we booked) and this was a major disaster!! Squashed in a table which didn't have room for our plates. No waiter service... you had to up then down stairs if you wanted a drink. After complaining a waiter was sent in with drinks for us. On handing them out he managed to spill a drink all over me and just started to laugh.
The party didn't happen. We left and went to a restaurant as our whole night was wasted but after we returned we met some of the other guests who had stayed and they said the disco never happened and after 3 music quizzes the guest were complaining so they shut the hall down and put everyone in the Kings Hall (where we were supposed to be booked in). At 12.45am thet eventually gave us a 'dirty' table in the Kings Hall where we spent the last 15mins of the party. Breakfast in the morning was a disaster with a 30 min wait to get a table then 15min wait for breakfast. They ran out of sausages, eggs and potato scones. Told us these would be ready in 10 minutes.
