The location of this hotel is excellent. The room had a nice veranda overlooking the gardens although the room itself was a little cramped. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were ok although one morning my partner requested some sauce, this was given to him in a ramekin dish which was clearly the leftovers from another table! It was nearly empty and had sauce smeared over the sides of the dish. Not very hygenic! On another morning the poached eggs were cold, the fried egg was cold and the sausage wasn't cooked properly, We ate in the bar every night as the restaurant menu was very pricey and very limited but on reflection I can understand why. This Hotel purports to host wedding receptions for 200+ guests yet on our third and last night the bar stopped taking food orders at 7pm and we were told we would have to wait for an hour before they started taking orders again. When I enquired why I was told because they were busy in the restaurant, I asked how many people had arrived to cause the bar food to shut I was informed 12!! So 12 people in the restaurant and less than this in the bar and they couldn't cope. What makes it even more ridiculous is the people in the bar were actually staying at the hotel and the restaurant is bookings only so it's not as if we took them by surprise. When our food did arrive we had to send it back; we had ordered fishcakes and they were cold inside. This hotel certainly promises but it doesn't deliver.
