Stayed here for business 21/11/12, checking in went well, the room was finished to good modern standard and the Gym facilities were an added bonus. Unfortunately I thought the bar prices were high and the quality of food was average, I complained about a dinner course not matching the menu but was told the food in the kitchen was correct just the plate I had was missing an ingredient, no apology was received, I signed for dinner and my drinks. The following morning as I checked out I noticed a service charge had been added to my bill "To cover my drinks and food" I think adding this to the bill after you have signed is underhand, I pointed out that I did not wish to pay this charge and it was removed, I will tip if I feel it is appropriate and that the person providing the excellent service will receive some/all of the tip, not always the case when a service charge is added.
Overall average, quality building let down by high prices for average food & drinks.
