We recently stayed at the Bridge Hotel as part of a group. The hotel is beautifully situated and the views are fantastic. Our Muddy Boots offer was great value - for what we got. Note though for other guests - several of our party were in cold damp rooms no 19 specific to this. The food in the bar was good but the restaurant food was served luke warm. The restaurant was full of our party and it was like being taken into a childrens dinning room. We were informed by Steven that we had to meet in the lounge and then be seated in small groups by him. We felt like we were at school and he was the head teacher! It was a laugh at FIRST! Not until everyone was seated did the meals get served. This resulted in LUKE warm food especially the main meal. The hotel appeared to be making up for the reduced financial offer by limiting the heating and staff. There were only two waitress's serving and they had to serve drinks from the bar as well.
The breakfast service was the same.
I do not think with the insufficient staff in attendance and what appears to be corners cut in other areas, that it rates the hotel as high as it could be - shame.
