Stayed the one night prior to our cruise the rooms where of the normal standard of this chain, which I find to be good.
What lets this Hotel is the stupid price of its meals and drinks.
We talked to people who had just dined in the restaurant , who was not impressed in the service the food or the prices and strongly advised us to eat else where which we duly did.
We had one drink at the bar which was to dear for the bar provided which was very dull.
As breakfast was included we went down for this. To say it was a bun fight was not doing it justice it was much worse than that. Total chaos with not enough staff to cope dirty tables everywhere, running out of fruit juice, food, spoons, etc etc.
The staff who where their did the very best to cope and I could not fault their efforts but it was to much of a uphill struggle for them. God bless them for the effort they put in.
I did not see anyone in charge of this mess.
I should hope the hotel is normally better run than this as I normally stay at one of the other Holiday Inns when I am in Southampton which is run much better than this one.
