Stopped off at the Great Northern Hotel today. Thought I would treat the younger members to a while in the pool while I went for a walk. Enjoyed my walk which is more than can be said for the 'swimmers'. They were disgusted at the dirt of the pool. They said they felt a bit "dirty" getting out of it. Anyway to make matters worse, we thought we'd have a bite to eat in the bar. Bad mistake. On entering the bar and taking a seat we waited and waited hoping one of the bar staff might offer us a menu, but not a person bothered about us. Eventually I requested one from the not so friendly bar man. I asked for a jug of Water and a mineral. I was told these would be dropped over to the table but alas I had to collect from the bar myself. All the glasses had to be returned as they were filthy - lipstick marks etc..yuck.. When the meal arrived it was minimal. It could be easily improved upon. (Salad) Very bland and tasteless. Probably half a tomato between two plates. Same for the egg. Prawns must have been scarce.! If we hadn't ordered a side of chips we would have been very hungry. Not once did anyone ask if we were okay,or if they could get us anything else. To be honest staff looked unhappy. Overall,the price we paid for this was totally unsatisfactory. The glass panes in the doors etc were grubby looking too. Brilliant location but a good upgrade needed.I don't live too far away but I wouldn't think of stopping off here again in a hurry.
