We stayed here for two nights at the weekend on a Crerar summer sunshine offer. Not much sunshine but tremendous value for money.
We had a good room overlooking the front of the hotel. It was clean, cosy and had everything we needed (including a decent hairdryer!). Beds could be improved with new mattresses or mattress toppers to make them comfier. The bathroom was a bit dated but I liked the fact that there was a bath as well as a shower and there was plenty of hot water. There is evidence of some refurbishment - in the bedrooms and the public areas - nice curtains and soft furnishings.
We ate in the restaurant both nights and our meals were generally OK but as others have said the food looks and tastes pre-cooked and and this lets the hotel down. Come on chef - you know you can do better than this; we don't mind waiting a bit longer for fresher food! The restaurant and bar staff were friendly and extremely hard working. Enjoyed the breakfasts.
One thing that I liked was a sign at reception encouraging people to leave feedback via Tripadvisor. As they clearly have some negative as well as positive feedback, I thought it showed a genuine desire on the part of Crerar to try and improve.More
