Service by Denise was lovely, very smily and kind, however the standard of food wasn’t up to par especially with the price. The place was very clean and nice atmosphere. Probably won’t be back any time soon.

The quality of food here has definitely declined and is very overpriced for what you get, I wouldn’t mind but even the chips are frozen and charging £3.95 a bowl! Very disappointed and when I questioned a particular meal was responded to in a very nonchalant manner by the

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review on Trip Advisor. I am disappointed to read your review on the food and prices. We have a team of dedicated chefs and various different food menus to choose from at the hotel the Bar Menu, the £8.50 Specials Menu (Includes a free dessert) and in our Olive Tree Restaurant, the A La Carte Menu or Daily Blackboard Specials menu and we hope there would be a menu suitable for everyone's individual tastes, budget or occasion. If at any point during your meal we were made aware that you were not happy with your meal in any way we would have been very happy to offer an alternative. I can only apologise if at any point you felt slightly uncomfortable with the way you were addressed and we will of course look at this in house. We do hope to be able to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kind Regards, Durrant House Hotel

We live locally and come here a lot for lunch. There is always an offer on...£8.50 including a dessert which is a bargain. Not just that but the food is fresh, home cooked and plentiful. Staff friendly and efficient. We find it hard to beat the value for money elsewhere, so come

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback, its lovely to read you had a great weekend with us with good food, good entertainment, very pleasant staff and comfortable rooms. Our Superior Estuary Rooms are more spacious, larger rooms with upgraded furniture and a seating area, with a view over the countryside and estuary at the back of the hotel. The upgrade supplement is taking all of these factors into account and am sorry you feel this is not worth upgrading too next time however hope that you would be very happy in one of our standard rooms during your next stay should you not opt to upgrade. We will of course look into your constructive comments and thank you again for your helpful feedback. Its great that you would stay here again and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future. Kind Regards, Durrant House Hotel.
