Booking the room, and breakfast, quite a long way in advance for my wife and I, meant I got a good deal. However, it then came to my attention, after making the booking, that there was a £4 car parking charge, which was not seen, either as an option, or in the T&Cs, when I made the booking. Having read a number of reviews subsequently, it seems others have come across this 'niggle' as well. Staying in about 1 out-of-town hotels a month across the country, as I do for work, this is the ONLY hotel I am aware of that charges customers for using its car park.
Booking-in went smoothly, and staff were helpful. The room was as I had expected from reviews - toilet noisy but working, room décor from the 70s; but I was also unable to close and lock the toilet door. This defect, along with a couple of other minor things, were reported to housekeeping staff. We then went off to see some snooker at the Ricoh Centre. This is the hotel's trump card in my view, for its location is only a 15 min amble from the Ricoh centre.
On return, my wife and I found the bed to be very comfortable, and we both had a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent, and staff were very helpful and attentive.
Using it more as a B&B, we did not stay for dinner, or try many of the facilities.
