We stayed here as part of a large group. - not good.
The tables seated 8 to 10 people and not all the group were eating. Our table had 2 empty places and we sat there fro about 30 minures while the other tables were eating and orders being taken. We stop a member of staff to take our order, who rudely told us we had to wait until the table was full before the order would be taken! I think we would still be wating now!
The management of the waiting staff was non-existing, everyone was running around like headless chickens! The main course came out before the starters and then there was a mix up with the amount of certain dishes!
All in all the meal was a disaster from our point of view as we couldn't enjoy it because we continually asking for one thing or another!
The rooms were ok but tired looking.
The plus side of the hotel is that is a good location if travelling by train as it a 10 minute walk from the railway station and to say it in the centre of the town it was very quiet at night with not much traffic noise.
