Myself and hubby booked a double room for a dinner dance that was in the hotel that night. Got to reception very tired and found it very slow to check us in. I found the whole hotel seemed to be under-staffed. Eventually got to our room, nothing spectacular about the room. The window only opened about an inch and it was quiet warm in the room. There were black marks all over the walls in the room and graffiti over near the mirror!!!! It did seem clean though!!
The dinner dance itself - food was meant to be served for 8 o'clock, the bell wasnt rang til 1/4 past 9. Everyone was having the soup, we were still waiting a good 15-20 mins for it. Then at least 30 minutes for the mains. 8 people at our table and 1 small bowl of veg and 1 small bowl of spuds given to us - we had to ask for more (only 4 people fed with first lot)
Went to bar in function room while waiting on mains and were told by a very very disgruntled barman that they don't serve drinks during the meal(all we wanted was a glass of ice for the warm wine they served with the meal!!!)
Breakfast the next day was fab!!
