For that I am extremely grateful and we had a lovely time. However, although the breakfast food was very nice, the service was below par. It is a... More

We stayed at the hotel whilst on a trip with Great Rail Journeys.(Palace Hotel Review). We had buffet breakfasts and dinners in the restaurant. The service improved during the stay and the staff tried very hard all the time. The food was good at both mealtimes with a varied menu at dinner.

A clean and warm environment , complimented by very good food with a good selection of well priced wines and a reasonably stocked bar. The staff were very attentive and professional . Would have liked a little more time between courses, however the food was well presented , tasty and hot.

Unfortunately they seemed short of staff, but we didn't mind waiting as it is a lovely place. The food is quite tasty but we decided to eat out at the Italian restaurant the second evening and so glad we did.
