Stayed on the Club floor which was well run with good staff.As the hotel is away from any local restaurants and the hotel is an area that I did not regard as safe we decided to eat in the hotel.Firstly the steak house appeared to have closed down so into the main restaurant where we were presented with the option of the hot buffet or...well the hot buffet.The Kitchen was too busy for a la carte we were told.You know the kind of thing that hotels love.Row upon row of gleaming silver like entree dishes heated by candle power.WHY do hotels do this?Its certanly not to present good appetising food.As I lifted each lid I was presented with stewed meat dishes,dried out fish dishes and something that was supposed to be cauliflower cheese.Imagine if you will a seperated cheese sauce with florettes of this normally nice vegatable sitting in the water with the cheese in congealed lumps also floating in the water.. It might have been good when it was prepared or defrosted 5 hours earlier.
All was not lost as a carvery with a chef came into view.It was beef or lamb.The beef was so rare as to be uncooked.and it was cold.(I usually oreder my steaks rare! ).What was left of the lamb was fat,grey and steamed.About 4 hours old I reckon.
Desserts were edible but tasted of the factory rather than the patisierre.
When asked by the waitress if everything was OK I said no it was dreadfull .I received a smile and my room was charged with the full amount.
Yes Sheraton I know the hotel was full but you can do better than this.
