The Majestic is a beautiful hotel-rooms are spacious and interior is reminiscent of the opulence we might associate with the Victorian ladies of Harrogate. The car park is a decent size, and well laid out. We stayed overnight, and a couple of days on a work related seminar. The staff that we encountered were pleasant enough, but not particularly helpful. Our room was big, and the linens were all clean, though there were a couple of minor glitches with the room prep. Breakfast was regular hotel fare- all quite tasty, but not noteworthy. The 'old school lemon curd' was really more the 'heavily set modern' variety. Buffet lunch was a good, fresh salad with generous meat platter and fish platter, along with a small choice of hot dishes, which my other half enjoyed on day two, but said was only luke warm on day one. Dinner was the table d' hote menu; good choices, and well cooked, though the fish cake starter was somewhat light on the fish, and the sauce on the fish main had a skin by the time it arrived. Vegetables were hot, and not cooked to death! The main criticism at meal times relates to the fact that we were in a fairly large party, and we're seated 12 to a table. This led to very 'cosy' meal times, with little manouvering room, and each table had just one set of condiments, butter dish and milk jug. On the whole, not an unpleasant stay, but probably not somewhere we'd choose to go back to based on this first experience.
