We did not stay at this wonderful old building in a lovely old town.We only ate.We had eaten here before and decided to give the hotel the benefit of the doubt and try it again.
We conclude that the kitchen staff possess a unique skill.
They can successfully remove any trace of flavour from any food.
To be fair,it is as cheap as chips(flavourless ones) but in future we will pay more and have real food with taste.
The service was A1 and the place is A1.Food so disappointing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This well-known landmark is an amalgamation of historic buildings dating from the 15th and 18th centuries, known as a number of names, including The Crown during King Henry VIII's reign. However, eventually it was named The Royal Hop Pole when Queen Mary stayed in 1937 and gave it the official 'Royal.' Charles Dickens even mentions The Royal Hop Pole in his first novel, The Pickwick Papers. Other interesting information and pictures are located all over the hotel, including information on how the Medieval Banqueting Hall was discovered when the hotel was recently refurbished. The Royal Hop Pole has its own beautiful garden which leads to the banks of The River; there you can see picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and the Malverns. ... more less
