I stayed here on the weekend of the 24th September 2011 for a golf weekend. The Rooms are fine and the hotel part that has been taken over by the Crowne Plaza looks very nice, but I dont think ive ever stayed at such a poorly run hotel in my life. The staff have no idea what they are doing. They shut the sports bar at 6:30pm when it was full, they only have one bar tender working behind the bars so average serving time i worked out was 25 minutes!!! then to top it off they actually ran out of beer.
Everyone i spoke to at the hotel said they were disgusted with the place. One person told me that they had tried to get dinner from the buffet at 8:30pm and they had ran out of food aswell!
Very odd place and I would'nt recommend staying here.
