My wife and I recently had a three day break at Holme Lacy and for the first time were a little disappointed. Firstly we discovered that unlike the other Warner Hotels we have visited there was no house band.Being a musician myself I have always enjoyed jhaving a live band.
Also we decided to book the Bistro restaurant for the second night of our stay and the Orchard Restaurant for the third night.
The first night we found the food excellent in The main Bremner Restaurant but the second night we were very disappointed with the Bistro.
I had vegetable soup which was completely tasteless
followed by beef which in itself was OK but the vegetables were bland and the roast potatoes very poor
My wife chose a lamb dish and found the meat very tough.
I complained to the manager and refused to pay the supplement.
Rather than risk being dissappointed with the Orchard we swopped back to the Bremmner for the last evening and had a very good meal indeed
Other than this we found the hotel delightful and the staff extremely professional, friendly and helpful including the manager
We have visited Littlecote, Cricket and Bembridge Coast and never had cause to complain in the past
It was a shame to have hade these hiccups at Holme Lacy
The Gardens and grounds were lovely and the cabaret which featured The Rubettes and Comedian Bob Taylor superb
