I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of an organised line dance weekend. Arrival was chaotic as all the key cards were on a table and everybody was trying to find theirs. We were asked to dine between 6.00 and 6.30pm as dancing was due to commence at 7.30. A big mistake. The dinner was a buffet. The queues were horrendous and the food cold. To be fair, the management did apologise and offered us free wine with our meal for the remaining 2 nights. We were also allocated staggered dining times. Our group was the last to dine and that meant that there wasn't always the choice of food that the earlier diners had. For example, the new potatoes were all gone by the time we dined and we had sauteed potatoes each night. Another guest found that her bed was wet on arrival and, as the hote was full, couldn't be moved to another room. She did get a full refund. On the bright side, breakfast was good and we had great time but I would not return to this hotel again.
