I went to this hotel last saturday with a group of people for bar food. It was about 2.30 in the afternoon.The service was incredibly slow and the food poor. Orders were mixed up.
One of our group was having soup. It arrived cold and the butter accompanying the bread was rock hard. The soup was sent back and when fresh soup came (eventually) it was with half baked "doughy" bread and again rock hard butter. After discussion (which was difficult as none of the bar staff spoke english as a first language) some brown bread was produced which was freezing to the touch, having obviously been just taken from a fridge.
It was like something out of faulty towers. I am not surprised that the place was practically empty. However, the receptionist was friendly and helpfull in calling taxis.
