I have paid £50 for our annual St George's Day Lunch. Never again!! 4 servers serving 150 diners. Lovely roast beef served with 'German' mustard!! Ran out of Horseradish sauce & asked for that & English (remember this is St George's Day!) but neither came!! Eventually spoke to the duty manager - a play on words for 'wet behind the... More

While the serving staff are friendly and polite (when they appear) there seems to be a 'standard delay' thereafter following making a food choice. Judged on two separate evening dinners, with only one other table (of two persons) occupied, it was a full thirty minutes between ordering and receipt of the starter. The menu is not an exciting one and... More

We had bar meals here and various cocktails. The bar meals we had were delicious home made soups with crusty breads and club sandwiches with a variety of fillings. The seats were quite comfortable and there was also a choice to seat on a sofa with a lower table. Service is excellent and I had the best cocktails I have... More

Really tasty dinner as part of a Living Social package. Excellent value. Bottle of wine of our choice included. Good fresh breakfast.

very poor service, waited half hour between each course and had to keep asking and asking when food would be out, eventually had to ask for our pudding to be had back in our rooms as we had children to settle, and an hour and half with fractious hungry little ones is not ideal for that length of time.

This hotel is really curious. There is quite a turnover of staff. Whilst they are there, they are very friendly and customer orientated. But they don't seem to last, which is a shame. Parts of the hotel are smart, but most of it is very run-down. The front automatic sliding doors never seem to work properly, the decor is very... More

This photo is nothing like the room we had.This is much more modern.Don't know how long Topland have owned this hotel, but I suspect it's a work in progress, the carpets in reception and other ground floor areas are much newer than in the room we had.

Booked in to hotel for 3 nights and have tried the hotel brasserie and bar for the last 2 nights. The hotel website boasts about "Our menu blends British and European classics – from beer-battered fish and homemade pie of the day to arancini, bouillabaisse and Belgian waffle sundaes – with spicy favourites from further afield including Goan prawn curry...
