Booked a last minute two night stay, unfortunately we had a twin room so no double bed.
The two single beds however were very comfortable with really nice pillows.
The room was a little tired but spotlessly clean.
The bathroom could also do with a refit, showers in the bath are not a good idea but this one was certainly very powerful and no problems with the hot water.
Breakfast could have been better, did not get off to a good start, waited to be seated and was told to go and wait in the drawing room are and someone will be out when a table is ready, now, for a hotel of this size, you would expect a table straight away for breakfast, there were other people waiting as well and they all were of the same opinion as people naturally discuss these things.
When we were called, a short wait really, we were shown into the breakfast room, but....another couple had not heeded the wait in the drawing room and proceeded to steal our table, you couldn't make it up really....so our poor waitress immediacy cleared a table and we were finally seated, after giving the other couple a few glares and stares I thought it best leave alone.
We were asked for our cooked order and told it would be along shortly and to help ourselves from the real buffet etc.
Very poor choice with many items either missing and or in short supply, same with the fruit juices.
Picked our cereals etc and sat down.
No coffee arrived, asked waitress and finally after another wait it arrived along with our breakfasts, only to be disappointed again almost every item was either luke warm or cold, they looked somewhat like they had been sitting on hot plates for quite sometime.
Our toast turned up but was so toasted and hard it just broke to pieces.
We ate our cold breakfast and left.
Next morning a little better, got a table straight away and the breakfast was slightly warmer.
A real shame as the staff do a great job for the most part, I think the kitchen staff need retraining and the breakfast manager needs to sort out the missing breakfast items, she walked passed so many times without noticing juices were empty etc.
We have stayed in many many hotels and not seen this before. less
