Reasonable hotel if you avoid the bar and food
Posted Sep 2, 2016 on Hotels
While the hotel itself is welcoming and up to par with my expectations, the hotel bar leaves a lot to be desired. The food was mediocre at best, and that's from my partner and myself. Overcooked and undercooked food on the same plate, tasteless for the most part. The menu is in dire need of an update also. My partner being a vegetarian, had a choice of 2 options from the entire menu.
The staff, from kitchen to bar, appear to be in need of serious training, or replacement.
They are currently running a cocktail promotion, so we decided to indulge while away. The first bar tender had no idea what the "house special" cocktail was, or the fact that it was printed on all of the menus at the tables. After that, I decided to ask for a well known cocktail, also on their promotion list, a Mojito. The drink that arrived was in a martini glass, sugar around the rim and not a leaf of mint, or crushed ice to be seen. From what I can tell, the bar tender put lime juice from a bottle in with rum. I enquired, to ensure that he didn't mishear me, and sure enough, he replied that these were indeed mojitos.
Retraining or replacement sorely needed.
