I wanted to visit Seafield Lodge again as I went there as child on a family holiday in the mid fifties. I know it was a long time ago, but I recall that at the time it was the premier hotel in town for anglers, and the food was outstanding with a "Cordon Bleu" chef/cook. Sadly the overall impression was disappointing. the décor is now very tired as are the fittings The TV in the room was a vintage 14in model that I have not seen for years. The supposedly bigger room was at the front and light and airy. The bed was acceptable. There is a big restaurant but the owners seemed to prefer that guests ate in the bar. The hand written garish menu boards outside the hotel promised lots of variety, but the quality was bar food. Breakfast was better but the fruit was prunes and reconstituted apricots. The cooked breakfast was reasonable if only the waiter had taken the orders properly. A potentially magnificent kipper was spoiled by being overcooked. The staff were friendly enough, but are either unaware or unable to afford what it takes to make a pleasing modern hotel.
On the positive side the situation is convenient and parking ample.
