We Booked to stay for a relaxing weekend after the Christmas Festivities to unwind and enjoy ourselves at the same time. We chose the Lyndene as we had stayed here before for a weekend Break and found it to be of good value.
However our Fate was to face us upon our arrival...we booked a Double Room for my wife and myself and where handed the keys upon our arrival at 4pm to our room.
we had been allocated a Family Room on the second floor which we found to be unsuitable as the room consisted of a twin plus a single adjoining room and very small..we have been married 31yrs and have never slept in single beds..we did`nt intend to start now..we where then allocated a double room on the second floor to the rear of the hotel,,,we found the room to have a faulty window.(not seating in the frame) faulty light fitting(hanging off the wall) leaking ceiling(from room above when showering)and very dated with decor and yellow as though hotel guest had been smoking in it.
EVENING MEAL; on our arrival we chose Battered cod with chips and veg for our main course....fish arrived looking dry and triangle like shape and tasted nothing like cod..more like whitefish or pollock.....10 chips and a Potato between the 2 of us along with veg..we where left disappointed
BREAKFAST ..was a Disaster..we had ordered Porridge the previous night along with full English.. porridge arrived Luke warm and swimming in milk but edible...full English was CHEAPEST of The CHEAP ...Consisting 1 each of Bacon.Sausage,Egg,the smallest piece of fried bread and a spoon full of beans...we also ordered toast with the meal which eventually arrived in a basket between 4 tables to which the waiter distributed it with his fingers between us all.
We had Evening Meal the same day which was pre ordered at Breakfastime..Very little portion wise and tastelessly cheap.
We never ate in the Hotel for the rest of our 3 night stay.
Overall...We found that this Hotel was very disappointing compared with our last stay at the Lyndene. Poor Quality in rooms .in need of a good decorating and repair..plus update of 60`s style furniture...poor waiter service in restaurant. and Terrible CHEAP food to boot.
Entertainment at the evening was good but dragged out..ie,,Top of the Bill acts only on stage approx 10.45pm until 11.30pm
To top off our Stay...the hotel have their very own early morning wake up call service in the form of a maintenance man who woke up my wife at 08.30 when he started hammering in a room 5 doors along the corridor and his mate was mixing plaster outside the door..it was our last Day of our stay...and will be our last stay Ever.
