A group of us (mainly disabled people) went to this hotel on 5th Nov. This only MY personal review other people had different experiances.
We had experience of 3 drivers , but the one on our return journey (DAVE ***) was very rude and wasn't even going to make a comfort stop as he was running late, he had stopped to fill up with fuel after picking us up instead of doing it before. Eventually after insisting on a stop as several people on the coach were unable to access the on board toilets, he did stop complaining and making arcastic commentsall the while. The driver going down was also rude when we requested heating should be turned off and air conditioning should be turned up.. CHRIS , the third driver, was very nice, polite and considerate. However the trips were very good value for only £8 .
The carpets in most of the hotel were stained and the first room we were allocated you could only get into the bath by standing on the sloping bit at the head of the bath, as the toilet was blocking the rest of the bath. It is a rambling hotel with many stairs. Our towels were not changed at all during our stay.
There is a limited menue, which is all served. Our waitress was unable to perform her duties properly .Every meal we had to return more than 2 items each meal as she got them wrong, and on one occasionwe were sitting at the table for 30 mins prior to us being served. on more than one time another waiter served us as he had observed we were still waiting. when the food arrives it was rarely hot but vegetables were always soggy . Didnt have decent veg. the whole of our stay.
Toilet seat , shower head where broken and lock broken on the door , all reported 43 times and only sorted out when I actually spoke to the owner ( but then not the lock repaired) would have to thein hard about returning.
However the entertainment was very good , much better than i expected.
