On arrival after a 2 hour plus drive we arrived at the hotel. at first we thought it looked very nice. our room was big and clean and there was a bar so we were happy. then we went to the restaurant for evening meal which was a complete shambles. the staff didnt have a clue what was happening, the tables were filthy and the food well i would not feed my dog it. We opted for carvery what a mistake that was the meat was overcooked, the veg had been there for at least 4 hours and you could have played conquers with the roast potatoes ie if you stay here please eat somewhere else as believe me the breakfast is just as bad. infact we all had dicky tummies even before we arrived at our destination so our first night was spoilt. we payed for park and stay at the hotel didnt think that would be a problem as there were lots of cars parked up. to our horror on return from our 2 week holiday our car had been broken into, the hotel knew nothing about it and hadnt even recorded when it happened so secure car park i think not. so i would seriously reconsider anybody leaving there car there as no body seems to care. when we reported our breakin/theft greater manchester police informed us that this hotel is forever having vehicles broken into and would advice nobody to park there vehicles there. due to the circumstances ie broken window we had to stay at the hotel for 4 hours and they charged us full price for a room which we had no choice with 2 young children they were very understaning.
