My 'boutique' room was very cosy with a lovely comfy bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast and good evening meal in the bar. I enjoyed a swim in the pool which was warm and pleasant. Only downside was corridors had seen better days and carpets were stained. Good value and location.

My wife and I booked in the Ambassador to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. When we arrived we were taken to room 200, which was dark and dingey with a frosted glass widow, presumably to hide the fact that the view was directly onto a brick wall. Unhappy with this, we requested another room and were moved to room 118.... More

Reception area is tiny and we had to wait about 10 minutes for anyone to come, despite ringing the bell (faulty towers style), had to wait again as the girl who appeared couldn't check us in. Rooms were extremely hot and stuffy (I would estimate just under 30degrees, without exaggeration!), window was hanging off its hinges and looked into what... More

Our room (103) was generally OK, but the bed was not very comfortable due to the mattress sinking in the centre and making us both roll towards each other. The toilet paper was probably the lowest quality available, and the toilet seat kept coming loose. Breakfast was reasonable, but the marmalade (unbranded and probably cheap) was quite vile, and not... More

Very nice stay in the Spa Hotel. The cost of the room represented value for money and the hotel team were friendly and polite. The dining menu was a little uninspired but there are plenty of restaurants nearby and my stay was very enjoyable.

The cleanliness of the suites was very poor, scum on the bath tuns, ripped valance sheets and stained beds. When complained yes was given another room however the new room was a fire hazard due to electrical sockets coming off the wall (115). Staff seemed not bothered about it, although said would look into it.food over priced. Spa poor, pool... More

Visited on Sunday 31st August for mud raul treatment , with use of spa facilities. We found the temperature of the swimming pool & changing room area very hot & changing area very small. To our surprise our treatment was DIY & again the steam room was incredibly hot. Whilst staff were pleasant , customer service was lacking . We... More

Far too much money for a hotel with delusions of grandeur. Poor service, no one at reception, very hot throughout, windows that wouldn't open and no hot water. Yes, the photos on the website look great but the hotel is far from it!
