“Comfortable, modern, friendly hotel with a decent restaurant”
Reviewed 15 September 2010

I stayed at the Dovedale for three nights on business and found the hotel certainly amongst the best in the area. Good quality standard room with new freeview wide screen TV, jacuzzi bath and free high speed free broadband. Although the room had a double bed and a bunk bed it was large enough to take these comfortably. The staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. I only ate in the restaurant once and admittedly had a simple dish of steak on a bed of rocket with chips and salad (which came on seperate plates) which I enjoyed, all included in the price of the meal, no hidden extras. I'm not quite sure why some of the reviews are so negative, it was a pleasure to stay at the Dovedale and I will quite happily stay here again when visiting the area.

Went for a meal and drinks here with my friends. The food was average and very over-priced. You have to pay extra for any vegetables and food was very average. Apple pie was like a lump of sawdust, great big hard crust with tinned apple. Pasta in a tin of tomato sauce. Cocktails were very weak. Never again this place is a ripp-off and the management were totally greedy.

Food not bad but the menu misleading so you end up paying more. Weird atmosphere, Some of the clientele unsavory. I will not be going back. Has left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Requested a non smoking room on arrival was guided to a smoking room containing a dirty ashtray, two dirty glasses, curtains that had a huge stain on them and mould around the shower. Towels have seen better days and kettle coulkd also do with replacing, when complained was told it was probably booked on line. Attended a function at the hotel the next day the girls working behind bar told us they couldn't serve as they were not old enough and we had to wait twenty minutes to be served when they arrived they did not know how to pour pints then there was another twenty minute wait as there was no change, food arrived uncooked and of very poor quality its hard to believe that this hotel has won any awards, really it should be called a hostel, satff are rude and clueless and I would strongly recommend that you stay else where £90 a night is a joke and when you complain you won't receive any apology just blank faces, the sooner people realise this the better. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED STAY AWAY

Took my two sons and wife for dinner as a birthday present, on arrival asked to sit down and have a drink, asked for a menu, after 15 minutes asked again , 15 minutes later asked again, still no menu, called manager over asked for menu, it arrived fifteen minutes later. after threequarters of an hour asked what we wanted. after waiting 1 hour total asked to sit in dining room, fifteen minutes later meals started to arrive ( took ten minutes for all to get starters. The chilli prawn starter was pathetic 3 prawns and letuice on plate for the price it was shocking. We are now aproaching 11/2 hours, eventualy mains came and again very dissapointing for price. Now 11 o clock and asked if we wanted sweet menu, i declined.
On paying spoke to a lady sat next to the bar think she was hotel manager, after saying she could not give excuses whent on to give a lode of clap trap.
How could the evening telegraph get review so wrong, will never eat there again, PS have had complaint from others about similar problems.
