My visit to the Langstone Hotel was for a Christmas dinner dance.
At £70 for Saturday night accommodation I'm wasn't expecting the Ritz however a dated decor and heavily chipped and cracked bathroom suite and excessively noisy air conditioning unit was not anticipated at the Langstone Hotel.
Bar prices are excessive at around £4.00 a pint and £20.00 for a bottle of house wine. Needless to say the difficulty in communication with bar staff due to language barriers (I'm British born and raised), also made my stay all the less enjoyable.
Once seated for the dinner dance my companions and I were then asked what we would be having for our dinner. Having explained that we had already pre ordered from the menu supplied to the party group the waiter simply stated that the menu had changed. At no point was anyone in the party of 150+ guests made aware prior to seating and no gesture of apology was made.
The new menu offered was a bland chicken or fish dish. Steak as previously offered had been withdrawn without explanation. Accompanying vegetables were over cooked and tasteless. At the price of a meal ticket exceeding £25 I find it hard to think how the hotel can truly justify presenting such a sub standard meal.
I can honestly say I've had better and more enjoyable meals in a JD Weatherspoons pubs on a Friday night.
My best recommendation is stay elsewhere.
