Great, but shame about the evening meal. ..
We have just arrived back from this hotel and overall enjoyed our stay. The
Hotel itself is in a beautiful setting and Frodsham is a lovely place to wander around and explore. Our room was clean and very comfortable, the staff attentive and welcoming. The only thing which let it down was our evening meal. After reading in the menu about their 'commitment to sourcing local, fresh produce of the highest quality' we thought we were in for a treat. Wrong. I ordered the bruschetta to start and when it arrived it was a frozen slice of pub garlic bread, which had been microwaved to make it rubbery with raw red onion and melted cheese on top. Perhaps I should have said something at the time but what do you say to a hotel who thinks this is an acceptable thing to serve as bruschetta? The rest of our meals continued in much the same vein, except for the cheesecake desert which was pleasant. We felt as though we were in the lidl advert except that that food is probably nicer and there was change in the ad from the £42 (£21 each) we were charged. The menu was called the market menu, suggesting that this is where it was sourced but this appeared misleading and we felt ripped off given that the Italian Orchard and other restaurants offer three courses for £17 of much better quality. Again in the restaurant the staff were professional and attentive. We slept well and after our experience the previous evening were unsure whether to try the breakfast which was included in our Groupon deal but we were glad we did as this was great, offering plenty of choice and again the staff were excellent, even though some of them had been serving until late the night before. We probably would stay again to make the most of Frodsham in the summer, but would definitely eat elsewhere. less
