Stayed here for 2 nights mid week while house hunting. From the first we found the customer service to be excellent, all the staff friendly and always looking out to help in any way they could - high attention to detail. Breakfast was super, good selection and high quality, well presented and served. Our room was fairly small but adequate, very clean, big bathroom, and the bed was very comfortable. Water was provided in the room, and the tea/coffee tray was generously stocked. The hotel location is ideal to walk into the centre, about 10 minutes. Car parking was sometimes a bit tight, but we always managed to find a space ( the Lodge is being refurbished, so there were a few vans around). The reception, bar, lounge areas are very smart and welcoming. We used the pool and steam room and found them to be clean and pretty much what you would expect, did not use the spa services. Only downside was the bedroom walls being a bit thin (or we had exceptionally noisy neighbours). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not look to go anywhere else in the area, it was the attention to detail and customer service that really impressed us.
