Stayed at this hotel 25-27th April. We saw they had had a recent make over in the bedrooms.
This is where the nice part ends.
After driving from London, we were hungry so we went into the White lion bar which is part of the hotel for some food. We ordered a steak sandwich and a burger one pint of larger and a soft drink £30. The burger was like a piece of old cardboard, really cheap and nasty. My steak sandwich was like a lump of tough grizzle, the only redeeming thing was the bread.
Day 2 we went to the Bridge Café for lunch. Set up to look the part with proper linen etc.. We ordered from the menu, which was described as dressed crab £8.50, what came out was some crab spread on a very small piece of toast with leaves.
Then our mains one Chicken Caesar salad, which was very brown lettuce, very dry chicken and a dressing of very vinegary mayo trying to pass as Caesar dressing it was so thick you had to spread it on you could not dress anything with that. My fish and chips was two pieces of fish fillet tails stuck together and battered. So a lot of skin and very grey fish inside, when I asked the waitress what the fish was she said Haddock. I am a chef in London this grey sloppy skin in batter was not Haddock. We just left the food and the Café.
The hotel is charging Premium prices £300 for 2 nights and a Buffett Breakfast dating back to the 70s and old nasty crockery and metal tea pot that get hot and burn you.
Then They hold £300 on my bank card after I paid in full on departure. They said they would release the money as I paid in full. A week later still no access to this money. spoke to the bank they said the hotel still had the money held,
We travel to a lot of hotels for leisure and would never return here!
