Arrived at the hotel at midday was pleasantly surprised at the reception area. Checked out the limted menu and asked for the wine list. Under the heading of Champagne the were two bottles available, one of which was priced at just below £20. I asked the waiter if it was Champagne and was told yes. A bottle was bought to the table, opened and poured. I then asked the waiter to show me the bottle and it wasn't Champagne at all, it was an inferior sparking wine with very littel sparkle. His response was that hey call all sparkling wines Champagne at the Hotel!! A little traing is needed, I think or maybe a visit from trading standards.
I am aware that generally you can't but Champagne at this price, but I did ask was was told that it was. Overhaul the hotel room was ok the dinner was below average and the breakfast was very good. Would I use this hotel again? Probably not.
