My husband and I spent 1 night on 5th Feb as he had business the following day. We didn't arrive till 8pm so had no time to see or enjoy the leisure facilities. We were both pleasantly surprised on entering the hotel foyer as it does have quite a grand feel. After checking in and putting our bags in our room which was really nice and spacious, warm and inviting we decided to stay in the hotel and eat in the bar. The bar staff were nice and friendly but we felt the food was quite expensive for relatively simple meals £10 a £15 ( fish & chips, sausage & mash, pasta dish & burger & fries) to name a few. Once ordered we sat and enjoyed a couple of drinks but after 45 mins we still hadn't received our meals so my husband enquired at the bar and said it would be next. The duty manager came over and apologised and said he wasn't happy with the 1st order so had the chef re-do it , we both had the feeling he was telling porkies (it's a great line to use) especially as the food came as we were talking to him but he offered us a free drink each which was nice , I opted for a free pudding as had enough to drink and I must say the lemon meringue was more like lemon goo and the food was just ok. We had a comfy enough sleep and had b/fast delivered for a £3 fee which was excellent on both accounts. We would be happy to stay agin but will probably go out to eat.
