Having spent the Xmas break at the Alverton we found the accommodation was good and the staff friendly but the food left a lot to be desired. Xmas Eve dinner was satisfactory but things deteriorated from there. Xmas Day lunch - we had a choice of turkey or beef - we chose the turkey which turned out to be a parcel of limp grey meat with very little flavour. The tables around us were being cleared before we had even had our dessert, and we had to ask 3 times for the coffe to be served. Boxing Day dinner menu stated Roast Beef, we assumed would be freshly cooked - but no it was obvioulsy yesterday's beef & veg served up again - the roast potatoes were rock hard. Cannot remember the name of the dessert but it was Xmas pudding with a dollop of merginue on the top.
We did not eat the haddock served at breakfast on the 27th because it was very strong in flavour!
Would not recommend the Alverton's Xmas package & we will certainly not be going back again.
Also we have written to the General Manager twice now & have not even had the courtesy of a reply, which says a lot for a 4 star hotel!
