We have been coming to this hotel for over 16 years on long weekend breaks and have always enjoyed our stay.... but not this time!! We booked for an evening meal as It was a special occasion and was looking forward to having our evening meal in the al a carte restaurant, as we have always loved the ambience, service and food which was always well presented and enjoyable. On Saturday evening we were told the restaurant was not open anymore for evening meals, even though there was lots of people dining, so we had to have our meals on a small wobbly table just off the bar area. The staff as always were efficient and friendly but when our meal arrived it was just 'pie and chips', I enquired where was the usual terrine of vegetables, to be told they have to be ordered separately and are now extra! Although the pie was good, our meal looked typical bar food and spoilt what was supposed to be a special evening. We had the Superior Suite which was clean with lovely views but decor needed upgrading, it was well overpriced ! We came away disappointed as in past have always enjoyed our stay and have recommended lots of family and friends, but I would not now, standards have gone down!!
