The Mothering Sunday weekend did not live up to its initial promise. Lovely hotel, immaculate décor and helpful, friendly staff. Staying for a two night coach tour my husband and I were more than satisfied with our large comfortable room and the walk in shower which was all we had requested. The TV was a little on the small side.
Dinner on both nights was good the vegetables being especially delicious. Desserts such as cheesecake and custard tart also delicious.
The highlight of our tour was to be Sunday lunch in the Celtic Room which we assumed to be a carvery. We all dawdled about the castle and surroundings to kill time until lunch. What a let down. No starter. We were all given plates containing a large portion of chicken. No choice. As a vegetarian I waived my portion and relied upon the previously delicious vegetables. Second let down. Vegetables were "al dente" with a vengeance! Cauliflower, swede (?) et al challenged the teeth. Roast potatoes saved the day. My husband tackled the chicken which he declared to be "horrible" as did most of the rest of the forty or so coach travellers.
Since it was billed to be the centre piece of the tour we were somewhat miffed as since there was also no dessert we departed for the very long journey home to the midlands.
