My husband, his parents and I stayed here for a weekend for my Husbands 30th Birthday.
We had booked the Yorkshire break which was very good value. This deal was 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast, we also had the option of a packed lunch.
There were weddings on both the Friday and the Saturday. This hotel obviously makes the most of the money from Weddings, which is fine but there is no privacy in the bar for non wedding guests.
Checking in was quite difficult. My husband and i had been charged when we were told we would not have been, it was refunded the day after so we had to pay again on check out. I found it quite disconcerting that the first wedding in the photo book at reception was the member of staff that checked us in.
we stayed in the Lakeside rooms. We were initially in room 29, however we were unable to get the tap to run into the bath and turn the cold tap on. We were then moved to room 20, which was right next to the entry. This could be noisy at times and the fire door next to the room bangs as the hinge dampeners have been used so much. The room was clean and perfectly ok. The bed was very soft and felt like quite a small double.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Matthew in the bar was a star. There were things that had been changed or not available on the menu but he explained everything well. Matthew mentioned that the hotel's wine merchants have gone bankrupt recently. It means he had to explain that the wines on the menu were slightly different. From an outside view this could easily be rectified by reprinting the menu and would make staff more comfortable. It also became apparent that the majority of glasses are washed in the one glass washer at the bar, and with 2 functions on the Saturday night the whole bar was covered in glasses.
Food was nice in the restaurant and breakfast cooked well. Mother in law said the smoked haddock was the best she had experienced. I had emailed before to ask about leaving a birthday cake as a surprise for my husband. However when I went to do this at reception they seemed very surprised and could not store the balloons we had bought.
We would stay again but it does appear that funds are tight at this hotel.
