We arrived Friday night looking forward to our weekend in the hotel. We were last here two years ago. Nothing has changed except the price of the food. The room was as previously well kept and cleaned for us all supplies of tea and coffee replenished as required bathroom cleaned immaculately. However the disappointment came in the restaurant. The last time we were there we had a lovely 4 course meal for £15. This time the same meal had gone up to £19-50. No matter we thought having driven 4 hours to reach the hotel and rather than go out we decided to stay in the hotel and eat. Usual starter prawns, followed by champagne sorbet to be followed by baked cod sauteed potatoes and seasonal veg. The cod arrived looked very nice sauteed potatoes, What!!!! 2 soggy hash browns sat in the water from the veg. Incredible, we completed our meal in disgust but to add insult to injury we were then invited to the lounge for coffee as they wanted to prepare the dining room for breakfast the waiter was very polite in his manner of inviting us to the lounge. The coffee at best was lukewarm and had been stewing by the look of things most of the evening. Finished our coffee and went to the room. Needless to say we didn't bother the next night with food and ate before returning to the hotel.
We won't be back as previous people have stated the hotel is dated but to some degree this adds to it's originality however if your not going to do anything in it then prices need to remain accordingly. All in all we were very disappointed as we had looked forward to our weekend.
Unlike ArnieWe won't be back.
