We stayed the Easter weekend and we had a brilliant break! James made sure that our every need was catered for! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Perfect for a quiet break with a tram stop right outside the hussel and bussel is only a short tram ride away!

We have just returned from a fabulous Easter Weekend break at the Doric my 2nd visit to the hotel. Had such a good stay in Aug 11 with my sister and son that I was worried it wouldnt live up to the expections I had told my husband. No need to worry everything was perfect. From the arrival to departure not one complaint. The hotel feels so comfortable our 12 year old son made friends straight away and the hotel feels so safe with good family entertainment and a small games room. Housekeeping is top class our family room was great, as is JAMES the restaurant manager who has his eye on everything and the restaurant staff they cant do enough for you with an excellent choice of food throughout our stay breakfast and dinner plus a special childrens menu if required. Must mention DAWN in the restaurant she goes above and beyond she never stops and GEORGE behind the bar he makes your stay. Bar snacks are superb especially the sandwich platter and a couple of beers in the afternnoon a real treat. I would recommend this hotel with confidence to anyone. Excellent value for money they have really got it right with the staff, food and ambience. Well done The DORIC will return soon !!!

We have been going to the Doric now for about 8 years, usually about five or six times a year on Gold Club weeks. We find all the staff are excellent, friendly and most helpful in every way. From booking in at reception to Stuart and his bar staff and James the very friendly restaurant manager,Jack and all the waitresses who give an excellent service in the dining room.The food overall is good but would like to see more fresh veg. and Chefs home made hot sponges,like he used to do. The refurbishment of the bedrooms and the hotel in general has been well appreciated by the regulars. Well done to everybody.

The hotel was very welcoming on the day of arrival. The room was lovely and clean. The food was great breakfast and dinner the restaurant staff were all very pleasant. The evening entertainment could have been a little better just felt like every night the music was for the sequence dancers. The bar staff were so helpful so I would like to say Thankyou to Toni and George ,made our holiday both lovely people. Would definitely stay again. Thanks guys.
