Little too busy with people passing close to table and sat too close to opposite table. Food nice but not as wide of selection as previous visits.

It's not the sort of thing I expected from a 5* hotel but it's the same concept as if it was your local pub A BUN FIGHT every one is trying to get their food pushing and shoving. A little dissapointed to the dress code I made the effort as it was my first time there it said dress smart and casual but there were jeans and trainers shorts and trainers this for me took away the element of all your statements regarding what we should expect.. On a positive note I couldn't fault the staff they were excellant, willingness to help and politeness .

Desserts were slightly lacking in comparison to the starters and mains, which were lovely. Difficult to find cutlery sometimes.

Came to stay for a romantic evening, not what i would call a five star dining experience. Tables were regimented and close together, the next table was approx 2 feet from us. There was only one waiting staff on duty so service was slow and not attentive. The food was mediocre, we commented it was not unlike the food at a motorway service station. Much of the food had been out for a significant period of time so was unappealing to look at and not very tasteful. If you want to keep your excellent reputation you need to up your game somewhat.

Customer service is extremely poor. We ordered drinks for 3 people, only 2 arrived then, we were told to wait for 15 minutes for the other one. After we had our meal, we waited and waited for our coffee to arrive. My 2 guest ended up sitting outside whilst I stayed in our table whilst waiting for our coffee, which never arrived at all. We must have been waited for a good hour. I decided to pay the bills. It’s our first time to visit the place and we are extremely disappointed with your customer service.

I have dined at the olive tree on numerous occasions and have had excellent meals. This time the food options was not of a good selection or quality. I was very disappointed and wished I had upgraded to one of your other restaurants.

for a 5 star hotel the food was distinctly average. I am not a fussy eater but the flavour of many dishes was bland. I have eaten in Michelin Star restaurants but I am just as at home in a Wetherspoons, the Olive Tree and the Grill House in which i have previously eaten sit only in the middle of the scale. Very disappointed

We were dining at 9.00 pm and to be totally honest the choice of food was limited. Trays were empty and not refilled. What we had was delicious but not all the choices were available. Disappointing seeing it was only 9.00 p.m. Also when we received our fast track bill thus morning there were items on there that we had not received. This was amended when we checked out this morning.

We were really disappointed by the olive tree restaurant. The choice was poor, the food was not refilled and the temperature was like warm. This was a real shame, the rest of our stay had been splendid. Having stayed in several five star hotels W before I felt the choice of meats at the carvery was appalling. Only turkey. It is a relief that none of the party were vegetarian as the alternatives to the meat was very limited. The salad bar was also disappointing. I won’t be returning to this restaurant and as the other restaurant charge a supplement it would stop my booking a stay at the hotel.

Enjoyed our Sunday rollover. Everything was good untill Monday morning breakfast. Went down early as we knew that it would be busy after 9, the service that morning was terrible. We were told to find our own table, had to ask twice for tea, and as i wanted 2 poached eggs i had to ask twice for them.One waitress said that they would take 3 mins, but that went by many 3 minutes, had to re ask for the eggs but there was no show. In the end i opted for a fried breakfast. As i had finished eating the eggs came and the taste of vinegar was over powering. I was not happy with the service this time. We have stayed at the Celtic Manor many times and this is the first time that service to be bad. I hope to see improvement when we come next time.

Myself and my dining partner were both visibly pregnant, the lady showing us to our table said I guess you won't be wanting the wine list then, which was correct! However, in the whole 2 hours we were there we were not offered an alternative drinks menu! That said our table water was topped up regularly. The food was tasty and there was an abundance of it. the desserts especially were divine. The atmosphere was odd. I appreciate you have a dress code and as far as I can see this was adhered to. However, the lady opposite us was not impressed one bit when two couples walked in, the men in shorts and the women in casual dresses - her comment was 'they look like they've just stepped of the beach'. Mind you the lady in question looked like she was about to dine with the Queen! Overall a great experience but would be more inclined to try the other restaurants on our next stay!

We have been doing the rollover for some years now and I have to say that the quality of food in the olive tree has without doubt been deteriorating over that time. This visit was no exception and we found the evening buffet very disappointing. Breakfast too was not it’s usual standard. The croissants and Danish pastries all looked rather burnt and there was no one to make toast instead we had to queue for a toaster. I appreciate that the rollover price is very good given the quality of accommodation however having in the past enjoyed cuisine as part of the experience we now feel the food to be more of a canteen quality.

The only issue We had was after paying so much for the package the charge of £15.00 to park my car overnight I think is outrageous and disgusting. Thanks
