My first experience (and last) in this hotel involved me arriving early. I was informed that the room was not ready at 8:30, which I could understand, so I asked them to provide me a temporary CLEAN room where I could shower before going straight to work after my flight. To my surprise, I was given a dirty room, with... More

Gym and spa are men only. This is not listed anywhere on the hotel website that I could find, and is also not stated anywhere on the hotel property. In fact, the only way I found out was trying to enter the gym. It is disappointing that a UK-based hotel chain would not offer equal fitness opportunities for both genders.... More

The grounds and hotel itself are nice and well maintained, food was fine but nothing special, Wifi was good. However we consistently ran into issues with service. Our room was cleaned once in 5days, we received our daily complimentary water only once (a problem when you can't drink the tap water), nobody would answer the phone at housekeeping, the concierge,...

I stayed 4 nights for business a month ago. It's clean, staff are friendly and it was quiet enough on the 2nd floor. Breakfast in particular was excellent. Perfect place to stay if on business. No extra luxuries, but you don't miss them when you're busy.
