Saturday night office party. Cold room but we thought there's 90 of us, it'll warm up soon - very naive of us! Service began, we were given stale rolls, no butter. When we asked for it, the staff couldn't understand us! Eventually we found someone to get us some & it arrived - 5 pats for a table of 11... More

On arrival I was greeted with a path at the entrance covered with many dead cigarettes. There was an empty wine bottle, cigarette packets and a length of rope (?) in the hedge leading up to the entrance. As I entered, the reception was staffed but no greeting offered. I went to the toilet. There was dried sick in the... More

Excellent room with jacuzzi, sleigh bed and decent furnishings. Decent food, good selection of beer at the bar and the breakfast was excellent. Attentive staff with a smile completed a pleasant stay. As a negative, I saw a few other rooms and they seemed very small and basic.....,although this is fine I suppose if you get the right price!

I travel all over the country staying at lots of hotels, so I read TripAdvisor before my company book me a hotel room. So I approached Waterside hotel with some trepidation...I shouldn't have worried Met at reception with a smiling Grace, who couldn't have been more informative and helpful. Ok the rooms need updating. But the food is excellent, bar... More

Not easy to find with Satnav but ok if check Google Maps first. Predominantly a leisure club with rooms. Car park was rammed when we arrived due to leisure club members but is nearly empty in the mornings. Check in ok but could not provide 2 keys for us (and on old fashion key-style not cards) and as we were... More

This is primarily a fitness club with a few bedrooms attached. My room was very small, with the bed very firm and lumpy. Furnishing were tired. Food and drinks at the bar are very overpriced. On the plus side, the large pool and gym are open to guests, but unless these are particularly important to you I would try the... More
