I was surprised the see positive reviews about this hotel. I really didn't know where to start when reviewing this place. For some reason my colleagues insist on coming back here year after year because it is cheap and in a good location. Unfortunately, I still don't think it is worth it. I would prefer to pay four or five times more and go somewhere else.
The hotel is very tired and really needs some money spending on it. The biggest disappointment for me is the food. The starter made me gag, something that has never happened to me before, the main course was okay but my colleague had a risotto that looked more like over cooked basmati, it rolled in clumps around the plate, I wonder if the chef knew what a risotto was. I could not face desert but my friend had cheesecake, it had been left out for a while as it was not cold when it arrived at the table, it smelled very sour and there was mould on the fruit. Wine was part of our deal but there was one bottle between 9, pathetic.
It appears that many of my colleagues had eaten their dinner before going to the Bellingham for a meal because they knew how bad it was. Perhaps I will do the same if I ever have to go again.
Such a shame!
