Stayed here for 2 nights 26/27 March. We arrived earlier than the stated check in time and as such were not surprised to be told our room was not yet ready, however we came back almost 3 hours later to be told we still had no room available, we were given a voucher for drinks from the bar, but this really wasnt good enough as our journey had been longer than usual and we wanted to relax a little before dinner. Once in our rom however our spirits were sightly lifted, very large and quite well appointed, however, the heat can only be described as fierce with no way to regulate it, the bathroom was a completely different story, baltic!..no heat whatsoever, a phone call to reception assured us that they would have someone to sort it out straight away, which 15 minutes later they did, the bar manager walked in.??...he had a good look round the bathroom then told us that the radiator only works when the hot water for the shower is on...ok, so, we run the shower all night then.?..i dont really think so. Dinner was included on the first night of our stay, and the staff and service were excellent, very friendly and very efficent and its such a shame that the food they serve is so second rate...£25 for a 3 course dinner that i wouldnt have served to a dog...awful!..so much so it made my partner physically sick!...I cant recommend this hotel to anyone, and it really is a shame that the excellent staff they have our being let down so badly, its a grand building, but it seriously needs updating and it needs a chef who can actually cook!...I wouldnt stay here again.
