First stay in Waterfoot in several years since it re-opened after refurbishment in 2009. "The Colour Purple" abolutely the theme in public areas and bedrooms. Refurbishment of bedrooms largely cosmetic - curtains, headboard, light shades (all purple) - furniture and fixtures including bathrooms still stuck in the 1980s. Any disapointment here forgotten due to the standard of the food both at dinner and breakfast. The bustling restaurant ("The Wine Bar") has excellent range and quality of main courses, although in keeping with slightly bizarre feel of hotel, no starters as such, just a range of breads. Staff were couteous and effcient and breakfast choices were excellent. Adjoining the Wine Bar is "The Snug" - somewhat incongruous and akin to a faux Irish Bar. Disappointingly a casualty of the Waterfoot's refurbishment was the removal of the indoor swimming pool - so given location outside city centre it leaves little to do on site. However good value for money (we stayed on a Supervalu Getaway Break) and other offers available on hotel website.
