Found the hotel convenient to stay in to visit the NEC. Unfortunately the restaurant left a lot to be desired. Our reservation for 12 people had been booked as we arrived mysteriously changed and we were not informed. We were informed that unless we ate off the same menu there would be a delay. We sat down at 19.30 and the first course arrived at 21.00 hrs. We were informed they were very busy although there were empty tables and no one queuing. We wanted our meal added to our accounts but a bill was printed off which included all our meals which then had to be cancelled and individual bills produced for us to sign. It was now well passed 22.00 hrs. The second night was not much better with the all you can eat buffet for £19.95 which consisted of cottage pie, haddock in a sauce, cannelloni, chicken in a sauce, peas, carrots, potatoes, coleslaw, cheese salad, tomatoes and lettuce. They ran out of plates and there was no one on hand to put put Morelia, the veg disappeared quickly and we were left waiting for more than 5 minutes until more arrived by which time the cannelloni went cold. On checking out the final bill was wrong my room number had been put against someone else's meal. Nice hotel but the dining room is a shambles.
