Stayed here for one night for a function. Firstly the room........ we were unaware that the walk to the rooms was outside and uncovered. We were in the furthest outbuilding away from the main part of the hotel and having got all dressed up for the function, I had to brace the elements, rainy and very very windy to get to the function, needless to say my hairstyle was given a bit of a makeover !! The room we booked was a superior double which is not that much better, same facilities just larger and with a sitting area. The bed was very comfortable and there were more than enough tea and coffee things. Unfortunately, wanting to have a bath prior to the evening, we found there was no hot water at all. I called reception immediately and within 5 minutes someone was at the door to sort the problem, turns out he found a boiler he didn't know he had (quote) !! After that was fixed the hot water was fine. The room was a bit dated, the bathroom roof light did not shut properly and the window frames were blackened and dusty. We were in a building with three rooms with shared access, which resulted in us being disturbed by a child running up and down the stairs and repeated banging of doors from the other room. BEWARE noise carries here !! The event we attended was held in the Black Prince room. The majority of people chose Liver Pate starter which was brown coloured sludge topped with melted butter top. The pate had not set and was disgusting and everyone sent it back uneaten. No refund or apologies were offered from the management and because of this many people were unhappy about it. The rest of the meal was ok. The white wine was room temperature and as a result a great deal was left untouched. The receptionist assured me that the wine had been in the fridge most of the day, but the volume of wine there was must have resulted in the fridge not being able to cope with a massive chilling job !! The breakfast was ok but as someone previously mentioned was not very hot.
I do not think I would be happy to attend another function here if I was placed so far away from the main hotel and certainly think the food was a bit lack lustre.
If it is winter, ask for a room near to the main building
