My husband and I went to dinner there for our 20th wedding anniversary. Our 15 year old son joined us. We had planned on going to another restaurant in the area that we love, but it wasn't open that night. Haven't been to Hotel in years so decided to give it a try. Big mistake. They weather was bad that day so when we entered the restaurant around 7:00, the only other people were 4 girls at the bar. The owner told us we could sit anywhere. We chose a table close to the front in the back room. Our waiter was apparently the bartender, as he seemed to be more interested in the girls at the bar than waiting on us. Took forever to take our order, never picked up the wine list, just left it on our table, actually placed the condiments he brought to the table on top of the wine list. Salads came out, which were tasty, but no bread came with them. A while later, our entrees came out, my husband and I ordered fish & chips and my son ordered the bacon cheddar burger. Fish and chips very greasy, french fries were good. My son didn't like his burger at all (how can you ruin a bacon cheeseburger??). I had to get up and go to the waiters stand to get salt & pepper myself. No sign of waiter, oh yeah, he's busy talking to those girls at the bar. We are locals and definately won't go back. Only reason for poor instead of terrible is because the french fries were fresh cut and tasty.
