          This hotel makes Fawlty Towers look 5*. There was nothing right about it - dated, dirty, food abysmal, staff totally untrained and unprofessional (apart from the new Manager who tried her best). The whole place is in need of a serious injection of cash.

          I would like to know how you could allow the fish, chips and peas to be served to us yesterday in your hotel bar when l took my partner and a friend who was holidaying with us from Spain. This food was disgusting. After waiting 45 minutes it arrived. The peas were cold, the chips warm and had been cooked in some yellowish smelly grease. The fish must have been twice or three times reheated and was dry and inedible. No apology was forthcoming when l reported this to the receptionist. My partner was sick and had diarrhoea all night. l will be reporting it to the food standards before you poison someone else. Not exactly a good advertisement for continental visitors is it?
