Booked for a family reunion, stayed in suite 17 which i would not describe as a suite, small mezzanine bed above a corridor with a small sofa and tv, no water in our room either. On arrival we went to the bar and found dirty glasses everywhere, took some time to get a drink and then served in a hot glass, no fresh lime for the G and T, very little ice in the drink, staff deflated and not enough of them. We went out for dinner to the Sun inn lightcliffe (very nice) as they had a wedding on . On our return assembled for drinks and charades with the family, no change behind the bar , service not brilliant. At 1 am the bar was closed so they could catch up with cleaning dirty glasses, it was a real effort to get a drink, wedding guests staying in the hotel could not get served and when we eventually got our drinks they were apalling, no ice, no fruit etc served by a member of staff who really could not be bothered, bar staff have could benefit from training. when the duty manager came after we requested him he sorted the problem well.
z bed in the kids room collapsed ! breakfast pretty poor, waited 45 minutes for 1 full English, my breakfast was not hot, tomato shriveled , poor quality bacon and black pudding, sausage ok, soggy toast ! invest in some toast racks so toast stays crisp. service not with a smile. great venue but looks like the wedding business takes priority and possibly over stretching themselves thus standards slipping, nice to see the Hotel busy though.
