We booked this hotel for 2 nights over the Christmas Period. We work very hard in the lead up to Christmas being in retail and like to go away for a couple of days to just switch off and not have to cook and have a bit of leisure time with the family. When I booked I was told that there would be a limited menu on Christmas Day in the evening. I then received a phone call the week before from the hotel to say that they would not be serving the bar menu but would be having a buffet that evening if we would like to book for that. It would be 20.00 per head and there would be plenty of choice. When we went down for dinner we were told by the waitress that as we had not booked into the hotel for lunch we would be be able to have a table in the restaurant but would be able to take from the buffet and go down to the bar to eat. We looked at the buffet which had 1 pasta dish, 1 chicken dish, rice and a bit of salad. We then said that we did not think this was worth the 20.00 per head that they were charging and were offered the bar menu. We ordered from the bar menu, took a table in the bar and waited....... After around 45 minutes another waiter came down from the restaurant to say that the chef had gone home and they were not serving food. He did apologise and say that we could help ourselves free of charge from the buffet. We did this, however by this point there was even less available on the buffet.
Breakfast was adequate, not as good as some buffets that I have had, not much choice of breads or fruits and there was no cheese bu this could be because of the time of year.
The hotel itself is very nice, a bit tired from the outside but rooms nice and spacious. We did have a nice stay and the staff were all very friendly.
The leisure centre was only open minimum hours which was a shame for the kids but did not matter.
