Had to stay here recently due to attending a training course...all i can say is that i'm glad it wasn't my own money!
I have never seen such outdated and tired/worn out rooms. Thread bear carpets everywhere, outdated fixtures and fittings, things hanging off the walls, tv's from the arc, cracked tiles, antiquated shower (that wouldn't wash a gnat), 80's decor and the weirdest colour combo's you could imagine etc etc etc. I would normally have put a long list of stuff into hotel management to get sorted but didn't bother on this occaision as we were only there 2 nights and busy doing other things.
As we were on a set menu we got a limited set dinner choice. I have never seen such a small main course served in my life. One dish i received constituted 5 green beans, 2 new potatoes and the smallest piece of fish balanced on top...the management of this place are taking the micky. Had this been a private booking the food (if you can call it that) would have gone straight back so they could try again. They never even put some extra vegetables & potatoes on each of our tables to help bolster the various dishes we had ordered. On the flip side, i thought breakfast and lunch on each of the days we were there was excellent and no tiny portions as you could help yourself so i made the most of it and stocked up before dinner time!
Sorry Pendley Manor but you really do have to sort the rooms out and get some new carpets because for the prices you are charging i would never ever stay in your hotel on my own money.
A positive word for the staff who i found to be very helpful and polite but obviously working in an outdated environment and strict management rules on how to cut corners to try and make more money out of corporate guests!
