    Booked 4 rooms and breakfast for a work trip, The first day no one turned up to cook breakfast so we had to go to Tesco. On the third day we had to wait 20 mins for the restaurant to open as the chef had again overslept. Then kept waiting further 30 mins for the food to turn up which made us all late for work.

    Room very basic and need of upgrading. food ok although limited menu. Unfortunately despite pre booking breakfast for 7.00 am , 2 out of three mornings, staff did not make it down untill gone 7.30, meaning breakfast was not served untill after 8.00 am. Not good when your on business. I work away a lot, and stay at hotels all over GB, this is by far the worst that I have stayed in. To add insult to injury, I have just been e- mailed my receipt for my stay at the Highway Man. It is £27.00 less than I paid???? Avoid this hotel at all costs.

    In general the stay was good (first time) but the bed linen was a little damp.

    When I arrived I went to the bathroom where the toilet seat was not secure and the toilet wouldn’t flush. They did sort the flushing of the toilet reasonably quickly, the cups in the room had dried coffee with the teaspoons stuck to them. I had pre booked the breakfast for both mornings which I had Saturday but we all said the breakfast was awful and half the things we asked for we didn’t get. I was the only one in our group that had pre paid the breakfast and the others all said they wouldn’t have the breakfast there on the Sunday so I cancelled and tried to get a refund which they said they couldn’t do. On Saturday evening I ordered a sirloin steak well done I couldn’t eat it as it was so rare when I complained nicely I was told by the young gentleman that he wasn’t the chef. When you pay nearly £40 for a 3 course meal you expect it top notch for that price.
