This was our 4th visit to the Broadway Hotel for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The hotel is lovely and the rooms very comfortable. They can vary in size though; we booked 2 rooms of the same type and there was a huge difference.
We arrived on Friday morning and tried to enter the car park but thee was no room to park, the receptionist was quite frosty on the intercom and told us we'd have to park elsewhere which we eventually did, the result of which wasa £50 parking fine as we had to leave the car in a short stay while we went to the races.
Once in the hotel things improved and we were greeted by a lovely bar man who remebered us from a previous visit, we then enjoyed a bottle of champagne in the bar which is a lovely venue.
In the evening we had booked dinner for 4 but one of the party was ill so we mentioned this to the restaurant manager (?) who replied 'you're paying for it anyway' which I thought was a bit off to say the least. We asked him for some water to which he replied 'natural or mineral?' we asked what was the difference and he looked at us like we'd arrived from a different planet. In the wrong job perhaps??
We did have a really nice waiter looking after us which made us for the shortcomings of the previous operative.
We ordered steaks (rare) for the main course which in my opinion was raw and cold. At this point I couldn't be bothered to send it back.
The breakfast however was very good and we had our same lovely waiter who asked if we wanted our coffee 'natural or mineral' which was very funny.
Having said all that I would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay again, it's a lovely hotel in a great location, just a shame about the few things that stick in your mind afterwards.
