We recently spent a Saturday night there on the 16th November, which is the norm, every 6/8 weeks when we visit our daughter who lives in the area. The reason,s we pick the Park Hotel are numerous. Its locality, standards, breakfasts, and attention to reasonable detail, especially since it has been refurbished. We have tried other hotels in the area but we return to this one.
On the visit above the only issue of concern was the problem in the dinning hall for breakfast, the restaurant is open from 08:00 to 10:30 hours we arrived down at 09:55 and found the place a little chaotic, no bacon, sausage, or mushrooms on the hot plates and the que as significant we spoke to the supervisor, (who is fantastic) she stated they always like to keep the food as fresh and just cooked as possible, but everyone had come into the room at about 10:00 hours and just swamped them. I had to sympathise with her as she was trying to do the best under the circumstances. And i also had to agree with her motives, as I have said before the food here is one of the reason we visit. We also noted on this visit that one of the lifts had broke down hence only one lift was working. They have 3 lifts one of which is normally not used hence it would be assumed that when one is faulty they would call into operation the third, but not this time we had to suffer the consequences.
One final moan, the car park or dare i say the gates they are a pain in the rectum, the exit particularly, the machine is in a very awkward position, half the time it does not work on a swiped card. overall it needs attention.
