We went to the hotel for a Boxing Day dinner and would not go back. There was no ambience, no Christmas music, no decorations, no feeling of Christmas at all...it all felt like we'd been herded into a big room, with no sense of occasion.
Our table didnt have enough cutlery and we had to ask twice for ice in the drinks. The toilets were yucky (floor was sticky and covered in toilet roll) and by the time we got to the buffet, the candles had been blown out and the food was cold. There was no salmon or profiteroles (as advertised on the menu) and they ran out of mince pies too.
On the plus side, the food was actually quite tasty. The gravy was hot and the roast potatoes were very yummy. We did a little poll around our table and voted 7 out of 10 for food and 2 out of 10 for presentation.
Overall, the food was good but there was no thought put into those little extra touches, which make a meal really special. With drinks, we paid about £120 for 4 people. Alas, I don't think we'll be back.
