Stayed here last weekend, good directions given of web site, plenty of parking even though the hotel was full. Booked into straight away the receptionist was efficient but acted like a robot and didnt take a breath!! Our room was over looking car park which didnt bother us, room on small side but was very clean. Our biggest problem was the air conditioning or lack of it, the room was very warm and though we turned it down it remained hot, we were able to open window but the noise from the road kept us awake for most of the time.
Used swimming pool, staff very helpful and pool lovely and warm, unfortunatley there was no body wash in any of the showers so had to shower again in the room.
Restaurants - Saturday we ate in Sanpams, the waitresses looked lovely in their chinese dresses, and the surroundings were very tranquil. We ordered the meal for 2 which was £22 each and well worth the money, it was very tasty and plenty off it, in fact most of it was left bacause of the big portions. My gripe and it is a BIG one is that we were charged £7 for a pint of becks and over £7 service charge, i should be the one to decide what tip i should leave, there was only 2 of us this is usually enforced for parties of over 6.
Next day my husband went down to watch the football in the lounge reluctant to buy a pint but to his shock a pint of becks exactly the same was £4, we had been obscenely over charged the night before!! We discussed this with receptionist who stated that they kept in line with other hotels, when we explained the difference in prices the £3 was deducted from our bill, but if we hadnt spotted this how many other people have been over charged? While watching the football on the big screen (no sound) a group of men came and stood in front of him, when he asked them to move they said sorry but the computer station was based right in front of the big screen, WHO designed this!!!!
Next night we went to the juction only 4 other couples so nice and quite. Ordered our food and waited and waited 40 mins later it came out ,after asking waitress was there a problem, it was obvious we had been over looked as the next couple that came in from sitting down to havind there food took 11 mins we timed it. Again service charge added. These things might never happen to any one else and i hope they dont.
Breakfast on monday was very quite compared to the sunday morning. Nice selection to choose from, but here we go again waitress came over to ask if we wanted any more from hot buffett we said no, so they started to clear up but i didnt realise that they cleared every thing so we couldnt have any toast, fruit or pastries, so we left quite disaponited.
