About Big Blue Hotel
The Blues Bar & Brasserie
Dining at the stylish Blues Bar and Brasserie is an enjoyable experience. Whether it's a lazy cappuccino or a delicious meal, it offers a tasteful backdrop to relax and dine in comfort. Sink into a soft, leather armchair and enjoy a long, cool drink or sip a hand-crafted cocktail at the bar.
Children can create their own fresh pizzas while parents can choose from an extensive menu designed with a European feel using only fresh, local produce.
For dinner the Brasserie offers an à la carte menu, a chef’s menu and a children’s menu.
Lovely meal with delicious food and courteous service. Restaurant was very busy though so once we had been served had trouble getting the bill and paying! Welcome oasis from the Easter holiday mayhem in the town.
Waiters very attentive. Food high quality. Menu restricted for hotel guests staying more than a couple of nights, so could do with more regular changes. Lots of choice but for special palate's. Draft lager options not to our liking and flat. Could you try Fosters or Peroni please? Desert menu not to our liking so safe ice-cream option chosen most times. Do you analyse how popular all dishes are? Suggest least poplar are replaced. Nice to have back-ground music for atmosphere but honestly sounds like broken record or birthing tunes. How about some popular classics?
We loved our stay. The hotel is lovely and the staff are fantastic. Can't recommend enough.
Staff friendly and effecient.
All the staff were excellent,friendly and professional.
Nice hotel brasserie, food nicely cooked and tasted good. presentation could have been better , prices seemed usual for a hotel . Good , friendly service.
Service was really friendly but pretty slow and had to keep asking for things twice, drinks cutlery etc. Food itself was nice enough without being exceptional but pricing was probably about right.
Loved every minute... probably the friendliest hotel I’ve ever stayed in, but great to see how seriously all take their roles. Food was fabulous.
Lovely stay and meal at the Big Blue ro celebrate my birthday with my daughter.
Marko and the guy with spiky hair were excellent!
I prepaid for the set menu during a recent stay. However, I preferred the look of the main menu and chose a classic beef dish which ended up coming with bacon. I should have fully read the menu as I do not eat pork. So I sent it back and had nothing as it would have taken too long for the other people! Therefore, I can’t really comment apart from be wary about what you order especially if you have certain things you would never eat. Also given the area I found the cost of the drinks quite excessive and most of the staff not particularly warm. In fact one waiter looked down his nose at us making me feel quite unwelcome! Annoying given I never made one bit of fuss about my lack of dinner which I still paid for...
Lovely food, attentive staff. Great restaurant.
Ate here many times, but this time I felt the vegetarian options are limited and I asked for a vegan menu but only two main meals to choose from. A mushroom dish would be good on there and more vegetarian starters. Disappointed this time around. But as always the staff are excellent so friendly but professional nothing is too much effort so thanks again we will be back 😁
Very helpful and friendly.
Fantastic! Staff were friendly and went the extra mile. Food was tasty and looked brilliant including the children’s dishes
Nice meal with a great Atmosphere.
Waiters in restaurant over the top, would not leave you alone when eating. Spoilt family meal and precious time together. Felt like they were desperate for tip. Had to leave without having meal.
Wonderful staff and great food make it a pleasure to dine here.
Great night even better service
Menu is good for vegetarians and always of excellent quality. Great wines available. Great children’s menu. Service always excellent. Perfect for a stay as everything available within close proximity and the restaurant makes the whole experience complete.
Staff always make you feel welcome we will return xx
Service in the restaurant was terrible even when it was dead! We had to wait 25 minutes just for out drink a bottle of wine and a pint of larger. We as twice where they were and all we got was its on it way. Also we was told the park didn't open till 11am so we can wait. In the VIP lounge and can be 1st in etc. We'll that was a lie the park was open at 9:30am but the rides don't open till 11am. So when we got in there the park was already full. Other than that our stay in the hotel was fine, and we would stay again in the future.
Had an enjoyable time with you..time of year..and early evening it was quite..staff very pleasent..we had the rack of lamb which was very tasty..but felt two or three options on vegetables would be better than just carrots..and mashed potatoes would have been better..apple crumble nice as well as the soup..
The staff were particularly friendly and made a special effort with our children (2 and 4). Thank you
Brilliant 2 night stay , meal and breakfast were fantastic and room was amazing . Thank you
