Stayed at this hotel around 18 months ago and then it did not have much to write home about, well it has not improved any. The hotel still caters mainly for bus tours, there was three the night I stayed, and although the people do not make a hotel, I feel the staff realise they are not dealing with possible clients that will return, I was asked on many occasions are you on the coach, why ??
I arrived an hour before dinner was due for last sitting and the meal selection was at that time very poor, and when I asked for more soup as the bowls were empty I was told that if it is finished it has finished for the night, one hour before the last sitting is advertised in the restaurant ??.
When I complained to the duty manager he asked ME to speak to the chef to see if he could make some more soup, your having a laugh ??
The main course was very dinner school like, and again the lack of deserts due to the people before me was very limited again.
The room was clean and comfortable again, and the hotel is in a good location just of the motorway, but I wont be back for a third visit.
I would recommend another hotel if in the area, but too bad if you are on a coach that stops here.
