We visited the hotel for afternoon cream tea yesterday with great expectations but came away sadly disappointed. We say 'sadly disappointed' because we had always wanted to visit the hotel and went there in a positive enthusiastic frame of mind having read the many good reviews.
We had our tea served in the conservatory restaurant and apart from another couple who came in for a short time, we had the place to ourselves. A little bit of soft unintrusive background music would have helped create a more relaxing ambience.
The pot of tea was good and strong, the finger sandwiches were nice but the scones had been warmed up and certainly did not taste as though they had been freshly made that day as they were dry with just a little fruit in them. The cakes were not particularly appealing and looked and tasted as though they had been made by a cookery student - no disrespect to cookery students, we've all got to start somewhere!
The staff were friendly and attentive and it is a pity that small issues detract from what is a nice hotel tucked away near Fleet town centre. Local hotels like this need supporting and our comments should be taken in the context of wanting the Lismoyne hotel to succeed, it deserves to.
