Met friends for breakfast. Only complaint is length of time we had to wait, but when it came everyone was happy with their choice. Will definitely be back.

Due to the room being busy, it was quite cramped and tight. Other than that though, the food was excellent and the service from the staff was amazing. Very helpful and accommodating despite being rushed off their feet. Would definitely book again for Xmas dinner.

Had a great afternoon with friends at one of the xmas afternoons with Sandy Davidson. Food was good. Waitress fantastic & great music to sing & dance along to. Only thing that let it down was the fact that it was very cold in the hall. Some ladies kept their coats on.

Was a great night. The entertainment was brilliant. Food was lovely and well presented. Only let down was that once the singer had finished it emptied quite quick. I would suggest maybe having the singer on in 2 stages to keep the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

Excellent afternoon with Sandy Davidson. I had booked for a party of 48 and had not one complaint about the food or entertainment Better set out than last year as there was room to dance this year. The one complaint most people had was the BLARING 60’s music during the meal when we were trying to socialise before Sandy came on. I asked for it to be turned down but it was not and it was unbearable! Food was delicious and service excellent. I have been asked by several ladies if we can go back next year

After attending a booking for cocktail masterclass which we had booked for 3pm we was extremely disappointed to be told when we had arrived that they were running late. We was told at the time of booking due to a function carmelite had on later that evening we would have to be out by 5pm which we were fine with. We had booked a meal as a result of the original timings for 5:30 at top end on union street as we were told we must be out by 5pm. After arriving we had to do find someone 20 min in to ask how long they would take and the bar lady was not the most helpful and did not come and give us any information so after 45 min I approached the lady who told me it would be about another half hour and when I explained we actually had a meal booked for 5:30 on the basis of the timings I was given she has said she was sorry but couldn’t get it any quicker. We eventually got in to the room at 4:10 and as a result everything was very rushed. I would however just like to say the bar attender doing our class was brilliant it was just a shame it was very rushed. So what we did pay was actually meant to be two hours, in the end was only 1 which was extremely disappointing. I understand and appreciate that at times things can over run but don’t understand as to how by that extent. What was meant to be a relaxing enjoyable afternoon was a bit stressful as we had to clock watch so we would be able to arrive at our meal on time also, which as a result we were five min late by time left carmelite and got there. So we did not have the best experience.

Ref our party night booking ref BWDN297 Approx.30 of us. Although the atmosphere was pretty good and buzzing, the layout of the tables and where we were situated was shocking, way too crammed and literally couldn't move. So difficult to get in and out, we were not impressed. The service was pretty poor, and for the amount of people there the bar service was ridiculous with only 2 people serving and it took forever to get a round of drinks in. We constantly had to clear our table of glasses and used xmas crackers, etc. One waiter at our table was quite rude, and we had a lady who requested a fruit salad for dessert because the others were not suitable due to her intolerances, and although we should probably have requested this earlier in the booking, surely a fruit salad is quick and easy to be put together. However, she was told the only fruit available was for decoration purposes - I mean really !!! So for over a £1000 just for our meal, i would say it was nice, although where we were sitting it took forever to get to us. Maybe if we were situated elsewhere it could have been a very different story. We will come back, probably NOT, unfortunately .... Albeit we had a good night, but this was down to our company and not the services provided by the Carmelite.

We had booked Blue Brothers Christmas Night at Carmellite. It was meant to be held in the ballroom - but they said not enough tickets sold so we were down in the restaurant where it was a bit squashed. Also, the menu was not the same as what we were expecting either so that was a disappointment. The food we had however was lovely and service was amazing. The piano player when we were having meal was a little drole could of done with something a little more upbeat as Christmas, but once the main entertainment came to stage it soon livened up. All in all a good night - but would of been a lot better if we got what we paid for.

We were really disappointed with our service. There was hardly any staff available, the place was very cold and dark. And one of my friends was sick after having the brunch menu of poached eggs. Also giving people two hours slots is very rude. I wasn't told this on the phone call yet on the email of my booking it said we had to leave by 2pm.

Food was excellent and service was really good. Enjoyed the show even though it wasn't what I was expecting. Would definitely recommend and will be back. NHS discount is an extra incentive too.

Although I enjoy live music I felt that the music on arrival was extremely loud as the restaurant was quiet - it was difficult to have a conversation across the table. The singer was also intrusive and wasn’t great. The food was mediocre for the prices being charged. The Prosecco and wine were nice although the wine that we wanted was unavailable. Service, however was good.

Terrible experience. One person couldn’t make the high tea however we were charged for the space, how ridiculous. Champagne was poor quality. Cake stands arrived and ten minutes later we had to ask for the actual tea. Bruschetta's were hard, salmon was tasteless. Absolute lack of sandwiches and food in general and a Poor offering in the sweet section. There was no butter or cream for the scones and no knifes to spread the jam. All in all a very disappointing experience, poor value for the money and we won’t be visiting again. Unfortunately I also book my Company Christmas night out at the The Hotel and feel that having been overcharged for someone that wasn’t there was such a bad service I’m forced to rethink the booking and possibly book elsewhere. Very expensive for a poor and underwhelming experience.
