We arrived in Hull at teatime with storms of biblical proportions circling round. We managed to eat two superb portions of Papa’s Fish & Chips and then drove the short distance to the hotel before the inevitable deluge. Our room was a short walk away from the Reception and when we opened the door it was like stepping into a Tardis. We had been given a suite and Mrs Hat was happy, very happy. Breakfast on Saturday morning was excellently cooked although the waiting on staff were on the `ahem` enthusiastic side of attentive. Saturday was a trip down the promenade at Hornsea followed by a relaxing spa and Jacuzzi back at the hotel. The landscaped gardens were indeed aesthetically pleasing, this after all was a wedding venue, but the remnants of the wedding party were briskly ushered into their own bar at 19.00 precisely.
Mrs Hat ordered a Cheeseboard from the starter menu and OMG. Unbelievably stellar in size, presentation and taste. A definite thumbs up. For cheese lovers and aficionados everywhere this was cheesy paradise. Berries, nuts, cheeses of different tastes and textures and… banana bread. All washed down with a bottle of the House Merlot. less
