We stayed at Meadowlands for five nights from 1st June 2014. We were part of a coach trip which was not cheap, however the food we received at dinner was of very poor quality and each night took 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to be served. There were three choices of each course. Most nights the soup was always vegetable or leek and potato. The Greek salad choice was four lettuce leaves a minute few drops of sauce a teeny shaving of cheese and about six plain croutons. The bread was always dry soda bread with margarine. The baked cod was so dried out and hard, even the courier complained. One desert was a small apple crumble with a vanilla sauce, the crumble was so dry it fell off the tart, the sauce was one teaspoonful under the tart with a tiny tiny squirt of cream the size of a teaspoon. After official complaint from tour company, the next night improved but sadly went back to very bad for the following three nights. The lounge area was freezing cold, no heating which meant we were the only people hardy enough to use it. All areas very dark and gloomy. We felt there were too little staff and chef could not cope with the number of people to cook for, serving staff did their best and remained pleasant under pressure. Bedrooms excellent on a positive note
