My wife and I went along to the Northern to have a look during daylight hours prior to a recent function for about 80 family and friends.
We had been to the hotel for lunch a few years prior and knew that it was perhaps showing it's age a little.
The reception staff were polite and immediately summoned the functions manager. He introduced himself and from that point did everything he could to accommodate us.
I'd say that the function suite could benefit from a coat of paint but in all honesty, when the tables, chairs and decorations were sorted, it turned out to be pretty spot on.
The bar was adequately staffed and the manager was attentive, frequently checking that everything was ok.
We also had hot food for everyone half way through the night which was a choice of macaroni or stovies. Both were excellent.
I read some negative comments about the parking situation but a fair number of our guests used the retail park just next door. 90% of the shops are closed at night so no issues.
All in all, we were very happy with our function. Anything we needed was found for us and I'd say the manager went the extra mile.
