a small party of us visited this hotel for afternoon tea recently. Everyone had scones and jam and 2 people had the full cream tea. We were told there was no discount if the cream was not required. o.k. However the scones were obviously not fresh as they came to us completely cold, not what we expected. We did not have any sugar for the tea and the tea itself was brought in a small pot with no extra hot water! Considering this is not a cheap priced establishment we would have expected better. We did request the scones were warmed and this was done and we also asked for hot water and this was provided. As we are fairly regular customers for lunch (which are always good value) this visit was definitely not in that class.
Whilst we appreciate people like the quirky aspect of this hotel we would suggest a little attention to the toilets i.e. the soap dispensers are very old and need replacing, most hotels now have the pump soap and hand cream. The toilets in our opinion are ready for a much needed refurbishment..
