Stayed here on a one night business trip whilst in the area.
Had a lovely quiet room.
The tv remote didn't work though , think the batteries needed replacing .. Used the buttons on the tv instead !
Very comfortable bed and lovely hot shower with plenty of pressure.
Had a gammon steak and Chips in the bar , service was very friendly and efficient , but my gammon was very chewy and the chips cold, in fact the plate it was served on was very cold as well.
I didn't make a fuss as the staff were so nice, maybe I should have but when asked if my meal was alright I just couldn't say no.
Had a nice cold beer by the real hot log fire ( that was perfect ) !
The cold food theme continued at breakfast however.
I was up early as I had a meeting to go to , I was at breakfast at 7am and found that the bacon, eggs and sausages etc were under the warming lights , but on eating the cooked breakfast found it was all cold ,seems to have been cooked at 5am and put under the lights to warm up ?
Cold baked beans Not very good at all.
I left the cooked breakfast and thought I would try the 'fresh' pastries.
Oh dear oh dear .. They tasted like they had been around for a day or two , not fresh at all.
Maybe this was just an off day .. Reading all the reviews for this hotel I expected something better.
I will no doubt stay again in the near future , but if I have food like this again here I will ask for it extra hot and fresh.
