I visited this hotel in September for two nights with my fiancé and our toddler. We upgraded our room to a superior room which was very spacious especially the bathroom. We found the room very comfortable and the location of the hotel was lovely and peaceful. We used the swimming pool and also the restaurant for both breakfast and an... More

This hotel holds itself out as 4 star. That being so one expects a certain level of assured mediocrity. Alas, the hotel is unable to delivery even on such basic tenants of 4 star accommodation. As a previous reviewer correctly observed the hotel is in a pleasant location. However, for a seasoned traveller with basic expectations, there the pleasantries will... More

The hotel is beautiful and very relaxing. On my original booking I had made a note at the bottom of the booking that I would prefer to have a modern room because it was my wedding anniversary. On our arrival to the gorgeous spacious room we were greater with a anniversary helium balloon, chocolates and a card. What a lovely... More

The best aspect of this hotel is that it was clean and the bed were comfortable.The reception staff were helpful. The price was OK at £75 per room but I believe this was on discount. The situation is only useful if you are visiting the University. You cannot walk from this hotel to any cafe or restaurant -so you either... More
