Stayed here 26th Oct 13 and had added the breakfast as an extra. Checked in at reception quick and very helpful with all the access details explained should I return late. Room 38 top floor at end of corridor.
The bedroom is typical of a pub chain type, double bed, flat screen tv, tea & coffee facilities, hanging & drawer space, trouser press and a table with a couple of chairs. All of which were cleaned and tidy, if you don’t consider a hole in the plasterboard bathroom partition wall a problem.
The bathroom, mmmm, well the only thing that comes to mind is 'tired'. The floor covering was dirty in the corner. The bath has an over bath Mira shower which leaked like a sieve when turned on with more water coming out from behind the shower head than the shower head. I stopped this by pushing the head back onto the fitting, otherwise the room on the lower floor could well have been flooded. The grout around the tiles needed a good scrub and bleach, with the bath front needing a repaint/replace, and the shower curtain could do with replacing. Also the sink plug was snapped off the chain and discarded in the sink. To top it all off, the light takes a good 30 seconds to activate when switched on.
Went for breakfast the following morning and was greeted to a not too busy restaurant. Helped myself to juice and found a seat. Placed my order for a Full English breakfast and although I was told I could have anything from the extras (cereals, toast, yogurt, etc) I explained I only wanted the Full English. Apparently this is the breakfast choice for anyone staying over in the hotel
I waited, and waited, and waited. 14 minutes until the waiter, who took my order, walked by and asked, "have you had your breakfast yet?". No. It was presented to me within 30 seconds so it must have been sitting under the heat lamp for some time.
It consisted of an egg (dried out), 1 rasher of bacon, 1 hash brown, 1 sausage, 1 mushroom and some beans. In the time I'd been waiting I saw on the breakfast menu that the All Day breakfast was £4.99 before mid-day, and consisted of 2 sausages, 3 rashers of bacon, 2 fried eggs, tomato, a mushroom, beans, hash browns and toast, the Full English was £3.49 for Sausage, 2 rashers of bacon, fried egg, tomato, flat mushroom, beans and hash brown.
When it came to paying I was to be charged almost £7. I raised this and although I could have had cereals coffee etc. I had only asked for The Full English. After a 'discussion' with the supervisor they relented and I was only charged the £3.49…even though I was a rasher short on the plate.
All in all just an average pub chain hotel which could do a lot better at little expense. Would I stay again, probably, but food wise I'd pay on the day as a 'walk in' customer and have the All Day Breakfast which appears to be filling, and I’ve since heard from friends that it certainly is. Personally I think the Hungry Horse chain need to explain more about the breakfast options for residents.
