I think I must of been on the same trip as Paul T, see other reviews, and I agree with all he says although I think he is generous saying the Sunday Dinner was an improvement - I think the Roast Beef was straight out of a packet and so was the Chef's special - Chicken curry! The only food that appeared to be cooked fresh were the vegetables and the breakfast which I thought was very good!
The menu for the week ahead is on each table so you know what you have to look forward to!!!
The staff were very efficient and fed over 50 of us very quickly, on the first night no other guests were eating at the same time as us, perhaps they knew better! The restaurant manager seemed to be less than happy with his lot.
The room we had (68) was a side sea view with 5ft bed and had been recently decorated, the bathroom could do with tidying up a bit. Sound insulation between rooms and corridor is not great and you must turn your key in the lock to actually lock the door!!
Leisureplex have recently take over this hotel but I have no previous experience of their hotels.
