My wife and I have,,for the last 25 years, enjoyed the dining services of this Hotel, it was our first choice for personal and family occasions. However, our visit for luncheon on the 24th of August 2013, with four guests ,was an embarrassing disaster.The pre lunch drinks were served in a scruffy bar which aiso accommodated a pile of cardboard packing cases. The main course menu comprised three choices, Moroccan Chicken, Salmon and a Vegetarian dish served with basic vegetables and sauces; anything else was extra. Compared to our previous experience the standard of cuisine and service was poor- one individual acted as receptonist,
waitress and accounts clerk.
From a warm welcoming atmosphere this hotel has been converted into a place of cold indifference. The prices were always high but represented good value for money, the exact opposite is now the case.
