I recently visited the Bestwood Lodge Hotel for a family occasion, with several family members staying over in the hotel.
This review is based on my experience of the food during the evening meal.
The cost of the meal was either £22 or £26 depending upon which of the two menus you selected from - neither of which had a great choice (although there was also a children's menu).
The food served was warm, rather than hot and some of the beef dishes were quite tough. The Panna Cotta was looked and tasted like very thick custard, not exactly light and creamy. My wife also had some plastic in her Shoulder of Lamb main course. The lack of quality wasn't compensated by quantity either.
I didn't stay overnight so couldn't comment on the accommodation, but I was told by the family that did, that the breakfast was in the same vain - powdered scrambled egg and no choice of fried or poached etc.
The hotel is in nice grounds and appears to have reasonable furnishings, certainly not run-down or shabby.
All in all, this was a very disappointing experience given a £26 per head price tag. I certainly won't be revisiting here for a meal.More
