We stayed here for two nights and as part of the package had a two course dinner on the first night. What we experienced was a very mixed picture some good points but a lot of bad.
First the good, the room was clean and had a good air conditioning, was quiet and had a comfortable bed although the toiletries provided were very basic. The staff were all very helpful and cheerful, but very few of them, only one to take orders in the restaurant and also serve all the meals and clear up, they also seemed very young and lacking experience.
The leisure facilities while small were good.
Now to the bad, it clearly states high speed wifi throughout the hotel, certainly not, a lot of the time it wasn't working at all and even when it did was so slow that you couldn't download even basic websites.
The worst part was the food, as I said earlier we had a two course meal as part of the deal. The starters were just about acceptable but the mains , priced between £12 and £15 were very poor. I had a Thai Green king prawn curry, the prawns were few in number and in terms of size were very small, it was accompanied by rice and prawn crackers which were covered in grease. My wife had the only vegetarian dish on the menu, roasted butternut squash served with egg fresh linguine. The pasta was certainly not linguine was more like thin spaghetti and covered in grease. The butternut squash was minimal in quantity and the whole thing was tasteless.
The breakfast the next day was not much better.
The following night we went to the weather spoons pub where for just over £6 we had far nicer meals.
We would stay the hotel again but would certainly not eat there.
