Jaysus, this thread was dragged from the dust!
Last year we ended up at the Raddisson btw. The hotel decor and the rooms were grand and festive, but the dinner experience wasn't the best at all. It was like a factory line with the food. Little things like crackers missing from the table, no drinks arriving, running out of bread and MASH! Have to say the staff were lovely and did their best but they were being micromanaged very poorly.
This year we were minus parents and weren't stuck to traditional menu..got home way too late last night to be worrying too much about potatoes
Glad to hear you had a good time despite the shortcomings of your dinner experience. Running out of food is definitely unacceptable!
