Decline of Saxon Hotel
breakfast service was VERY poor. Orange juice was not fresh - asked for ginger to be added. Did not happen. Cappuccino was cold. Eggs Benedict took 50 minutes to arrive, was cold and not on ciabatta as requested. Waitresses had no idea how to set the table and remove plates before they bring the next course. a real bad experience. was not like this a few years ago.
