Good but not as good as it has been. I think that this is the third time I have been for the New Year, (and also stay at other times of the year with various friends). The food the first night (from the nornal menu was very good, and so was the food on new years eve. But the following day the evening meal was pre-done and poor. Breakfasts ware a bit hit and miss with orders being wrong, forgotten, and a nearly raw sausage. The staff are good, and friendly (and the poor service was really down to it being New Year). The one bar meal we had was excellent, and the drinks service was good. I will be staying at this hotel again, but will give next New Year a miss.
