Stayed in this hotel back in December and overall had a very enjoyable stay. Plenty of car parking space, smooth check inn etc. Room was comfortable, a little dated but it was clean.
Breakfast was very good with no problems.
The only thing taht bugged me was evenign meal and this was taken in the carvery. After being shown to our table, we were told to go and help ourselves at teh Carvery and it was pointed out that starters and desserts were located to the far side.
Went to get a starter and looked at the blackboard or similar which said soup of the day (Cream of Tomato) and went to serve meself and it was not Tomato but Mushroom which was ok to eat but why not correct the signage?
Went to get main dish and was only offered one meat (Gammon) - nothing else on display, along with one yorkshire pudding which had been sat for quite a while and was fairly brittle and cold. No offer for fresh ones and to be honest, once the meat had been placed on the plate, the chef disapeared and then no staff behind the counter. Things were covered to keep them warm but again i think these had been standing for a while and nothing to tell you what was in each dish without removong the covers. Not a major issue but something which annoys me if no staff to help and advise.
Dessert was ok but again for a 4 star hotel, would have expected alot better.
Would certainly use the hotel as its comfortable and in a good location and with some impovement in service and food, could be an excellent hotel.
Another plus side is the massive lounge areas available to relax in.
