Best Westerns can be a bit "Hit or Miss" and this one for me was definitely a miss. First of all the room, this was nothing special, the décor was a bit bland, there were no nice touches. The bedding was clean but not luxuriant, the pillows were the flattest I have ever come across and the bed, well I like a firm bed but this was hard, uncomfortably hard. The next problem was the wifi was not working, sometimes I have a problem connecting with my work laptop but this was my tablet as well, so I reported it and the manager eventually agreed that it was a problem with the hotel wifi and he would get it sorted. I returned to my room to wait to go to the restaurant for my 7pm booking. I arrived in the bar at 6.45 to peruse the menu. The restaurant menu had a choice of 4 starters and 4 mains, I decided to go for a starter which I cant now remember what it was and the salmon for the main. At 7.05 I was taken through to the restaurant and at about 7.10 I was told that the chef didn't like the look of the salmon and he didn't feel he could serve it, but I could have cod instead. I changed my order to the steak. I sat and waited for someone to bring me the bread that had been listed on the menu, but that didn't arrive, and it would have been nice if someone had asked if I would like a drink. So I asked for some water and some bread. A lady sat down 2 tables away from me who had ordered a main after I had ordered my meal and her main course arrived before my starter which arrived eventually at 7.40. I wish I could remember what the starter was so as to make a comment, the steak arrived which was ok but definitely nothing more than that, slightly overcooked, I asked for medium but there was only the slightest bit of pink to be found in it. The desert for me was just as unmemorable as the starter. The whole meal was served by a young lad who I can only assume was on his very first day serving in a restaurant, but this was not the most annoying thing about the meal, the most annoying this was the constant commentary from the kitchen, you could hear the chef giving out his instructions, and he does like to call everyone "mate" if he said it once I heard it a hundred times. Breakfast was awful overcooked and cold. I will not be hurrying back next time I am in the area. less
