We were really looking forward to our trip away for our 30th wedding anniversary and when we arrived at the hotel it looked amazing. The reception was lovely and once inside the hotel it was a real maze but very nice unfortunately the food that was included was awful. The mixture was terrible and would never have expected roast potatoes with pie or even croquettes with a roast beef dinner? The food was cold most of the time and that was all the food including breakfast and a huge problem getting a runny egg. We spent the Sunday afternoon in the hotel games room where we entertained ourselves and popped down to reception for drinks as the bar was closed as stated in brochure in the room. The guy on reception on Sunday, when asked for drinks it seemed to be a bother and the soft drinks from the dispenser were flat in minutes but he tried it and it was fine which it was when it first came out the pump. The room itself was ok but I have great concerns about the chains on all the windows all over the hotel surely some of the windows should be fire escapes? The hotel is very tired and could do with a decent facelift asap.
