We visited the 'restaurant' for Sunday dinner, having not booked we arrived, unsure as to where to go/if we would get a table. We stood evidently looking for staff to not be greeted at all, staff seemed far too preoccupied. When we were eventually approached our orders were quickly taken and food arrived equally quick. Having opted for roast beef...

Been to the dovedale again, we probably go once a month, this is purely because the food is excellent.. the staff on the other hand are shocking, very poor service. We waited over ten minutes for menus to be brought when we first arrived, we waited far too long for our vegetables to arrive once we already had our meals....

Checked into the hotel and went out, came back late at night and went to get a shower. Little to no water pressure, the shelf in the shower was filthy and had a hair left in it from a previous guest. The radiator grill was full of thick dust and grime. The light switch in the room had been moved...

My first stay at the Dovedale although visited the area many times. When we arrived very busy as a wedding taking place but nothing to much trouble for reception to advise on the parking and where to visit until check in. As we had a party of 13 i must say they handled our pre ordered meals very well and...

This is a lovely hotel, close to town centre and seafront. The rooms are spotless, and the food is excellent. Service very good and polite staff. The only fault l could find was that there was no where to store your clothes that did not need hanging up. No draws at all in the room. There was every thing else...

Dinner was excellent. The food is superb and the service can't be faulted. The staff are friendly and very attentive. We shall be returning very soon. There are a number of very attractive features around the hotel with some small artefacts being available to purchase.

I love an afternoon tea. I try to fit one in at every available opportunity! The Dovedale always offers a great choice of sandwiches with theirs & I love how tasty the little cake selection is. The scones are huge & I'm never disappointed. Go on, treat yourself, I'll be visiting again in the near future. Yummy!
