We stayed at this hotel for a previous family wedding and was very happy with the whole package. Just over a year later we returned for another family wedding. Bearing in mind that the hotel had been modernised and redecorated in between, I was very disappointed with our stay this time.
Our bedroom smelled of sewerage as soon as we walked in. I told the receptionist about it and when we returned later, the smell had gone but the extractor fan was left permanently on and air freshener had been liberally spayed around.
The wedding meal was nice and the room looked lovely. After we were all led to the bar area while the room was prepared for the evening. On returning we found the tables had just been moved around a bit and when the evening guests arrived and everyone sat down, there was no room to get from one end of the room to the other. So you had to endure people pushing past to get to the dance floor. I think there were just too many people for the size of the room.
We had a good nights sleep even with the extractor fan on all the time to keep away the pong. The shower was cold and only after my husband got in it after me, did it begin to get a bit warm!
I think the hotel was totally booked with our family and when we all arrived for breakfast in the morning it was total chaos. The poor staff did all they could to cope, but there wasn't enough places for everyone to sit and a lot of people ended up sitting in the bar area, where they were forgotten about. It took us over an hour and a half to get through breakfast and we never did get any toast. The staff deserved a medal for all their hard work.
Overall the cost of the room even with the 'special discount' for a wedding party, which wasn't so special, was not worth over £80.
