Prior to our arrival I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel emailed to ask if we would like to book a table for dinner- so big thumbs up there.
On arrival the site is in a process of upgrading so there is building work going on but it didn't disturb us at all.
The rooms are all on ground level & away from the road, a bit like a motel layout & I was allocated room 7 which faced out over fields. The room had TV, tea/coffee, desk etc. & the bed was comfy. The shower was decent but the towels were a bit whiffy (kitchen smell?)
The restaurant was buzzing with flies so we spent all of dinner, and breakfast, trying to swat them away at the same time as eating- not pleasant. The food was OK, nothing special. Breakfast was a joke, I ordered their Brome Signature breakfast (2 poached eggs, prosciutto & croissant) then the waitress came back to say they had no prosciutto & offered ham (didn't know what type) or bacon. I opted for ham then she came back 5 minutes later to say no ham!!
It would've been fine but when it came out the poached eggs were like bullets. We also overheard that they only had 1 sausage left (to a table of builders).
At least we can have a laugh about it but will probably not be back again unless we can eat elsewhere.
