Firstly I would like to discuss the positives of this spa hotel and then explain why I have given it an average score as opposed to a very good or excellent.
1. Staff - lovely, really could not have been nicer.
2. Cleanliness - excellent
3. Quality/comfort of room - very good
4. Spa - very nice, especially the inside/outside pool
5. Breakfast - very average limited buffet. I like my breakfast cooked to order, not sitting around in greasy bowls with other people breathing all over it!
6. Drinks - slightly overpriced, but no more than one would expect in a 4 star hotel. However, over £3.00 for an Americano coffee which was only half full does seem a little excessive given the fact I was in Maidenhead not the West End of London.
And now to the reason why I have given this hotel an average as opposed to very good. The food!!!
If you are charging customers £14+ for a starter and £26+ for a main course then you have to be good and frankly this place is as far off the mark as possible. I am not saying that the food is bad, actually if they were charging more realistic prices I would say it was fine. But when you are presented with prices such as those, you expect something a little special, maybe somewhere heading towards its first Michelin star. But I am afraid that there is more chance of me running in next years Grand National than this place ever getting a coveted star!
