My husband and myself visited this hotel a few years ok. Always had a great time. We were quite surprised when we arrived to see that the entertainment lounge is now a restaurant (macnabs) and there was no entertainment on even though outside it says live entertainment every weekend. Spoke to a gentleman and asked about entertainment but his reply was it just depends I asked about future entertainment and his reply was again I can't say it just depends. Even though I told him we were hoping to come up for my mother in laws 50th and that a lot of us would be coming up he made no effort to even check. Room was freezing even though there was two heaters in it. Basic aswell. Bed was comfortable which was good. Although it wasn't it was a double bed it was two singles pushed together. Decided to have dinner in restaurant waited a while and it wasn't worth the wait. The macaroni cheese was very bland no taste at all. And the garlic bread was burnt definitely not worth the wait. My husbands burger was small with a dry roll and dried up coleslaw with no dressing which tasted like it had been lying ages. It was also freezing in there too no fire lit. A lot of people were going to there room and putting jumpers on. The hotel staff didn't seem to care. The sky also wasn't working and the men fixing it looked like a bunch of cowboys. Who didn't have much of a clue. We ended up going along to another bar as it was so cold and boring in hotel. Breakfast well we waited 45 minutes on it then when it came it was all dried up. Left most of it. It's such a shame as this used to be such a great hotel. We always enjoyed our stay. Now it seems not so friendly or enjoyable. I think they really one of the halls for entertainment. I think a lot of people going there after not being for a few years would be shocked.
