It was only after I booked in that I realised I stayed here before and nothing has improved.
The rooms look spacious only because some-one has stolen all the furniture leaving only a bed a doorless wardrobe and a couple of very lonely looking artefacts.
Due to the lack of adequate lighting it is impossible to comment on the rooms cleanliness, quite a clever idea if you think about it, rather than clean the room reduce the lighting too one watt and nobody will know the difference.
Evening meal was an adventure.I should have known it was rather silly to expect them to have rather obscure items on their menu at 7pm ie fish and chips or my second choice of gammon and eggs so I settled for a hot dog and chips.
I am pleased to say one thing the catering staff was not short of was apathy, judging from the sorry state of a long piece of fat masquerading as a sausage encased in piece of cardboard called a bun.
Breakfast was a bigger adventure, after searching for ten minutes I asked where were the cereals. We don't do them was triumphant reply which was furnished by a waiter from the Basil Fawlty school of charm who had very kindly interrupted his early morning chat with his friends.
The final coup de grace was the fact that any sort of breakfast was not included in the room price I declined to pay for what I consider to be half a breakfast and in any case as you are only allowed one hour parking on the road outside[there is no car park] you and your car must leave by 9 or suffer a fine I calculated that going by the performance of the staff I probably would have had most of the grub spread on my dashboard.
Just in case I have the misfortune to end up in Minehead again and find a distinct lack of hotels I eyed up the beach which would offer a better level of accommodation.
