Firstly i would say that prior to booking i had been inundated with offers on my imac, iphone, through the post. It is a bit of a minefield to find the best offer, it is structured that the earlier you book the bigger the discount. There is also a loyalty scheme which the neighbouring dining table explained they had received. I have not seen this advertised. They had already booked for Valentines? I finally decided to book online receiving a discount. We arrived late Friday night and needless to say it was pouring. The reception took our luggage to our room and led us to the dining room so as not to miss dinner, which was very helpful. A large buffet is available or you can choose some meals from the menu. On the whole you can always find something, salads always available and a hot selection which is self service. On carvery nights chefs carve. Being a vegetarian i ordered some nights from the menu., i have to say not that enjoyable. The first vegetarian was filo pastry with a filling which tasted of nothing. However, I had had a salad starter so was fairly full, soup was an option too. The second night i also ordered the vegetarian meal from the menu which again i have to say was not nice, but again i had a lovely soup starter so was quite full. Desserts from the menu. The waiter was very helpful and if you didn't see what you wanted for dessert you could choose ice cream or something. Breakfast again buffet style, porridge, cereals, rolls, croissants, fresh fruit and the usual bacon, sausages, eggs. Again you could order kippers, salmon or variety of cooked eggs from the menu. You would not go hungry. As Warners are catering for hundreds of people i think they do quite well in providing something for everyone... but it is mass catering! After walking what seemed like forever along corridors we finally reached the room. It was a signature room 356, quite spacious, mini bar with two bottles of water in!!! Patio doors to a very water logged garden where you could sit at a garden table and chairs, lovely view but as i say completed water logged which i understand was completely out character. We spoke to the gardener who said he didnt remember anything like it. Its a beautiful scene so i do hope that it dries up soon for other guests. I was lucky to see beautiful pheasants in the garden and sneaked some of my sandwich to them, they were very hungry. I am surprised at reading the earlier tributes regarding Queen. I was very disappointed, when the lead singer came on he was well over 60 and his backing group were all old. I know Queen are old now and Freddie Mercury is no longer with us but i found the band/sound system really loud and saw people leaving holding there ears. Freddie Mercury is a tough act to follow., The guests on the neighbouring table also felt the act was not up to par and again a group we met at the rifle range, said the same. So we were not on our own. Yes, we participated in the Rifle Range class which was fun. Aiming at paper targets and plastic shapes., the instructor was good fun and very patient with all of us. The rest of the group went onto the archery. The lounge area is very spacious with comfy chairs all over. There is a lovely restaurant where you can order sandwiches. I had a cheese and red onion pickle which was just under £5. My husband had a prawn cocktail sandwich also just under £5. The sandwiches are generous with crisps and a tiny salad, quarter of a tomato, leaf of lettuce. Very nice. During the day some activities in the main hall are laid on for some light fun. There are quizzes, some floor games and bingo later on. Warners give the proceeds of the bingo night to the British Legion which i thought was a nice gesture. Personally i didn't use the spa but i had a look around and found the swimming pool to be of a nice size with windows looking out to the garden and wished i had my costume. There was a large pool table and a snooker table, and table tennis near the pool area too. On the Saturday we took a trip to Portsmouth. On approach i though it looked an awful place, old rusting boats, cranes, industrial. How wrong was i when we got to the harbour, there is a whole new discount shopping centre with designer brands at reduced prices. Plenty of restaurants with great views of the boats, ships. All the history of maritime was there and its been very well laid out, you could spend a day there lots to see and do. Parking £3 for two hours. Getting back to Warners on arrival we were told the whole hotel was fully booked so they must be doing something right. On departure after three nights the whole show starts again with new guests arriving for mid week at Warners which is a quick turnaround. I noticed the hotel is very wheelchair/electric car friendly and it was nice to see all age groups being able to enjoy themselves., so if you are wheelchair bound this could be the place for you. Happy Holidays.
