Nice location, good Hotel, needs updating
Posted Aug 16, 2016
Firstly we are a family of 4, and although the room was a good size, there was only enough bathing supplies for 2, and most importantly that dispite having a fan in the room, it was unbearably hot, and therefore none of us really got much sleep. I dont think I have stayed in a hotel without aircon in many years.
The second issue was dinner. We booked for a meal at 9pm, arrived there at 9.10, placed our food order at 9.20 but didn’t get our food until 10.10, this is clearly too long, particularly with a young child, she got rather upset.
Sticking with dinner, 3 out of the 4 meals were good. I ordered a special which was described as Pork chop with a red wine sauce, new potatoes and seasonal veg. I got all of those and the pork was excellent, however, I had 1 & 1/2 tiny new potatoes and 3 small sprigs of veg. The entire meal was less that 1/3 a plate, but due to the long wait and early start we had the next day I had to put up with it, I did order a side salad to try and fill myself up a bit, but that didn’t really go with the food. We also ordered sweet potato wedges and got a tea saucer of soggy sweet potatoes fries, they were horrible.
Finally we paid for the breakfast, which in all was excellent, but again ruined when 2 of us who used the Ketchup which was very very cheap and like vinegar.
