The king James room had about 15 flies in the seating area along with glitter on the floor, the cigarette ends on the balcony were numerous and recently left there. The shower was low in pressure and the bathroom smelt of damp

The bar also hosted a wedding from 1530 with speeches at 1900. We would not want to spoil the happy day by interrupting the speeches so became trapped at the bar unable to get to our room.





We did ask reception if this would be a noises night, after receiving assurances that we would not hear anything the noise from the band prevented sleep.

Room Tip: Do not accept the king James room or go when a function is being held in the (small) bar.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

This Sunday my friends and I dined at this hotel for lunch. I love this hotel and park and have dined here in the past so was looking forward to visiting again. What a disappointment. To begin with we were served bread rolls long before any food arrived and the 'rustic' soup turned out to be bland, non-descript and totally unappetizing.

Service was poor (yes I know it was busy) but long after we asked to see the wine list we had to go in search of someone to remind them.

The carvery was the main disappointment. The plates were very hot but this sadly did not disguise that the majority of the food was barely warm. We were also left with the dregs of luke warm gravy - not a way to impress.

I have very special memories of dining in this restaurant. I had my wedding reception here in 1989 and my 10th wedding anniversary meal. I have also brought groups here for at least five years for a Christmas meal. Sorry but it will be sometime before I return.

Thank you for taking time to leave a review of your recent Sunday luncheon. I was most disappointed to read your review and to learn of your experience. We have a very popular Sunday carvery each weekend and rarely have any complaints. I cannot apologise enough that our usual high standards were not met on this occasion. I can assure you that I have spoken to all heads of department involved. I am pleased that you have always received excellent service in the past and I would hope that you would give us the opportunity to redeem ourselves in the future.

My son got married here November 2012 and what a wonderful day we had (apart from a bomb scare on the morning of the wedding) Despite the disruption, the day went all according to plan - congratulations to the staff. I thought the wedding breakfast was really good whilst catering for a large number of people and all in all a good day was had by all! I agree the rooms need a bit of attention decorating wise but loved the fact they had tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the bed was really comfy which is most important. Breakfast was excellent too, a good start before the journey home.
