We visited the Trecarn hotel for the first time on sunday the 26th January for our sunday lunch as was dissapointed on arrival to be told have we booked,we did not think that this would be a problem as we seen the advertisment in our local paper and it did not mention booking the receptionist went of to check if that would be ok on her return we was told that it would be ok to dine with them.
We was most suprised to say the least that after being in the restaurant for our meal that half of the dining room was empty and only about twenty people dining there.
Our order of leek & potatoe soup to start was very salty and while we was eating the waiter was asking for our mains order which we found annoying as we had a mouthful of soup and had to reply
then when we was eating our mains they was asking what we wanted for our sweet the staff was very pleasant and we could not fault them but we felt that they needed to stay a distance and give people a discreet distance.
We would not use the Trecarn again for our sunday lunch as the portions of the meals was very small in comparison to what other hotels are offering around the bay.
I also went to reception to ask where I could smoke as the hotel front entrance clearly had signs to say NO SMOKING HERE and to go to smoking areas, when I asked at reception I was told to just go smoke outside the front door and I thought that most odd that you would have implemented no smoking zones and then I can smoke in them at the front of the building and annoy most guests that obviously did not smoke and give me funny lookes.
and I surpose rightfully so.
You need to update your polices on this hotel as we live in the bay and would have wanted to visit and support our local hotels in the area when you have quiete periods.
