The hotel has clearly been on the decline since about 1985.
It's a sprawling place, even when you know which rooms to ask for (those with a bath and a reasonable walk) the request it acknowledged by reception as you checkin but you still find yourself in a room which doesn't meet your needs.
The food in the bar is some of the worst available in the UK, consistently overlooked, priced as though this is central London and unless you are a blue collar worker the staff can flirt with delivered without charm.
Tonight was one of the worst experiences - a room I specifically asked not to have, lager in a bitter glass, meal that was inedible and delivered to the table by one of the friends of the staff wearing civvies. I attempted to complain but the staff were gathered with friends, when my plate was collected eventually it was removed so quickly and despite the piles of food remaining I was ted asked about quality.
This place should be bulldozed but I bet it's a cash cow for coach trips and cheap conferences.
No wonder Ramada took their name away.
