We stayed overnight for a wedding. The wedding itself was fantastic - the function room was festooned in soft drapes, colour-co-ordinated lighting & chair decorations. Lovely countryside/sunset views from the verandah. Plenty space in the reception/bar areas, which are separate from the actual function room, which the older guests appreciated when then the disco livened up!! Fab food (hock terrine, beef medallions & huge choc torte). BUT hardly any veg & no decaff coffee in a 4* hotel? And no management in sight to tell us what was happening when the fire alarm went off between courses. The young waiting staff/guests shouldn't have been left to deal with the situation alone. Fortunately, guests & bridal party took the situation good-humouredly! £22.50 for a very average bottle of wine in the evening - other guests told us that this was mostly corkage. If they charged a more reasonable rate, we'd have had more!!!
BUT, only 2 people checking in dozens of guests who had all come from the church at the same time led to long waits - completely predictable situation that should've been better staffed by hotel. We weren't told when/where breakfast was served, check-out times etc. Couldn't find this info in the room; REALLY basic hotel management stuff. Directions given to our room were wrong - fortunately a cleaner guided us; no lift to 1st floor with heavy bag. Fab funky modern bathroom; clean. No full-caff coffee in the rooms - too late by the time we realised to bother asking. Paper thin walls meant that our early-rising neighbours woke me up VERY early with talking/TV. Breakfast was fairly revolting - soggy bacon & sausages swimming under pools of fat. Ugh. Had to ask for coffee & only got one cup; restaurant manager was more bothered about getting staff to clear tables for lunch than guests already there! Hassle-free check-out.
