We stayed at this hotel for the first time last night and on the whole it's a really nice place. The reception staff were very polite and our room was fantastic, nice and big, very clean, and very quiet. The only thing that lets this place down is the standard of the food unfortunately, which is a real shame as I've eaten here a few times over the years and it always used to be one of their plus points.
We were with a group of people and went for the carvery, which had a nice selection of cold starters. The mains however had obviously been sat around for a while which is fine if things are kept hot, but the food was barely lukewarm and it was starting to look a bit sorry for itself. The only vegetarian option was pasta with a mushroom sauce, which was ok but fairly uninspired for a 4 star hotel restaurant. There were a good choice of desserts but as we tucked in we realised the cream had gone off - but to the manager's credit he was very apologetic and quickly replaced everyone's food.
The bar areas are nice and spacious and the hotel and rooms are very clean. We would definitely stay again but next time we'll opt for the restaurant rather than the carvery.More
