Only just average.
We had been so looking forward to the promotional champagne breakfast just as a bit of a treat. Perhaps Sunday was not the best of days to choose.
The dining hall is a very pleasant room, set on two levels and clean. On this visit it was crowded and not much elbow room between clientele.
This was a ‘champagne breakfast’ drinks were served at the table by the glass, not poured from a chilled bottle as should be expected. For all we knew it might have been blancs de blancs.
The coffee was not great and was not hot. The juice bat offered a decent selection but I suspected juice by the box, not by the squeeze.
The worst single offence was a request for brown sauce, this received a response of a pointed finger to somewhere in the direction of the buffet, when in a hotel there should have been service. I realise that is was busy, but if I had wanted to serve myself I might have choose the all you can eat buffet bat at pizza hut, not an establishment with a reputation of one of Brighton’s former glory hotels.
It could have been so much better.
