Took my daughter for a spa break as a birthday treat as I had stayed in the hotel twice before and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a disappointment compared to previous visits. Firstly the outside hot tub was out of order and apparently had been playing up since previous week. We decided to have lunch beside the pool, ordered a chicken salad, as there are only two salads to choose from, imagine our surprise when we received a bacon salad that did not even appear on the menu !! Told reception but not that interested. Went for dinner and that was just ridiculous. The waiting staff had absolutely no experience of waiting on tables and had obviously not had the menu explained before service. No idea what the seasonal veg was or the oyster rockerfella, had to keep running into kitchen for answers. I asked for the oyster rockerfella and out came a plate of raw oysters, by the time I received the right dish my daughter was sitting ready for her main course. We had ordered steak with a sauce, 1 with chips, onion rings etc and the other for me with mash. Again big mistake, out comes mine with chips etc and neither of us had any sauce. They just didn't seem to be taking in what we were asking for. Half the steak was gone by the time the sauce came. The waiter came over and said "is that you,s all done now" Retired for the evening feeling less than happy. Decided to go for a swim etc after breakfast the next morning. Got down to the leisure centre to find there was a senior citizens aqua aerobics class going on and we would not be able to use the pool or Jacuzzi for an hour - some spa break !!!!
All in all a very disappointing time, how can a hotel go downhill that quick. It is such a shame because it is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location.
