Went to this hotel on "Tinsel and Turkey" coach trip. Bus Driver was excellent and 2 young girls who waited on the tables at the hotel were also very good. That is the sum total of the good news.
Hotel was dirty, carpet in bedroom hadn't been hoovered neither had rest of hotel. Roof in reception leaked, manager said it had been fixed and now only leaks in very heavy rain - confidence is restored, NOT. Scarily, there were bedrooms directly above the leaky roof...!
The food was a disgrace eg rice pudding had to be cut with a knife, porridge was lumpy and the Christmas Dinner replica was poor; no cranberry sauce and generally poor.
The manager was nowhere to be seen and refused to come down to reception to hear the complaints on behalf of our party.
When I say the place was dirty, I mean dirty as in unhygienic and in need of a good clean, this is filth above and beyond the tired decor.
The location and building has a great deal of promise if it were maintained and run well.
If you've booked, take my advice and cancel - there are a lot of much nicer places in the area.
