This was our surprise hotel on a tour and have to say that I was disappointed. I didn't expect the Ritz and on first glance the hotel is very nice. The room was OK, maybe a bit tired but adequate even with an ill fitting velux window. Bed really comfortable, well done. Issues I had include the evening meal, which may have been constructed within a strict budget but which was pretty poor fare, and the fact that the staff, although cheerful, seem a bit overstretched to cope with the numbers of guests and prone to disappearing. The service in the bar in the evening was desultory at best and we had to chase up tea for breakfast. I also cannot understand why drinks are so prohibitively expensive - £20 for a bottle of wine which would only cost £6 at most - surely a more modest mark up would improve sales. I can only assume that had we paid more we would have got better service but as it stands I will definitely not going back to find out.
