Hotel Carvery has a poor selection of roast meats and overcooked vegetables. Poor standards of cleanliness throughout the restaurant, especially the table bases and sticky table tops. Coffee served at breakfast was very poor, no real flavor, due to the way it is brewed. There seems to be missed place focus on costs vs quality re food quality and selection....

It's hard to be positive about a hotel when you're standing in the drizzle outside your room while the manager tries to release the new & overcomplicated card key lock and open the door, to let you back in, while your important conference call ticks past. Apparently it's a common problem with the outside rooms - why not replace them?...

Very clean and tidy. The food and service in carriages restaurant is very good, if slightly over priced. The mark up on their bottles of wine is ridiculous. I have stayed here on numerous occasions and always found it a good place to get your head down. Sometimes the traffic noise in the front bedrooms can be a little loud....
