“" Great Value......Excellent Food by Paul the chef"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

Just returned from an organised coach trip by Urquhart travel. Great value. The hotel was a 2-star. I found the room very clean and spacious. The cleaning staff were very diligent and pleasant. The waitresses were very friendly and helpful. The most surprising thing for me was the high standard of food that was served. Me and my girlfriend stayed for four nights. Every meal was delicious!! How the chef Paul does it I don't Know. There were one hundred and fifty guests, yet the food was always hot and on time. The food was really well cooked and seasoned perfectly. It was obvious that Paul the chef puts his heart and soul into his food. This guest really appreciated the effort..... it really paid off!!!

I read the reviews before we left but having visited there last weekend I am amazed how other people could say the food was good. It was appalling! I had tinned oranges for starter with a slice of kiwi (it was supposed to be mandarin and kiwi cocktail).The main course was salmon which was nice but the accompanying vegetables were frozen sprouts, frozen parsnips, tinned carrots and tinned potatoes.Yuk! The dessert was also frozen. Even the cutlery was cheap and nasty. Did they think we would steal any decent cutlery? Honestly!! The beds were clean although we were surprised to have a blanket on the bed and not a duvet.The mattress had definately seen better days. I know we were on a cheap deal with Leisuretime but have been completely satisfied with other hotels with them. What a disappointment!!

After discovering bed bugs rampant in the bed and having to change rooms at 12 o clock in the night, the manager was extremly unsympathetic to us as customers. He blamed the bed bugs on a certain bus firm for bringing dirty customers to stay at the hotel. How disrespectful! He didn't even offer any discount for the inconvenience.
