My wife and I were invited to a wedding this weekend and the reception was held in the Golf View. I don't know if we qualified for wedding guest discount, but we had to pay £90 each for a bed & breakfast deal, so this is not a cheap place to stay.
We did have a sea view room, which was perfectly OK but a bit expensive for what it was. We did report that a light bulb above the bed area required replacing and that the wash hand basin sink plug mechanism was faulty, and had to be removed in order to let the water drain away. Perhaps I am being pedantic, but if I am paying top whack for a room I expect everything to be perfect!
We had a bit of a problem booking in despite having had a forward booking made many weeks beforehand, and we had to be allocated an alternative room as the previous occupants had gone off with the key. (One would have thought that a hotel of this assumed quality and price structure would have had spare keys for all of their rooms).
We cannot comment on the quality of the food other than that the breakfast was very good and the service swift and courteous. The wedding reception meal was well cooked and served reasonably professionally except that it would have been a good idea to remove all of the dessert plates prior to laying the coffee cups on the table!
The wedding party thoroughly enjoyed themselves, but virtually took over the whole hotel including the bar and lounges. Had we booked for a quiet weekend and pampering, we
would not have been very happy, hence my suggestion that if you want a more relaxing weekend, you check as to whether or not the hotel is hosting a wedding reception before you book!
