as the kids grow older, and we travel more and more, to us there are three factors to rating a hotel: cleanliness, location and how they deal with problems, and on all 3 factors this hotel rated 10 / 10.
as per previous reviews, this hotel is brilliantly located, although because of our late arrival and early departure we didn't get much chance to take advantage of this.
the hotel is spotlessly clean: bedding was crisp and fresh, and the bathroom was lovely and well supplied with toileteries.
the problems the hotel dealt with for us so admirably were: on arrival, room allocation for us and our friends was for rooms well apart - we wanted to be near each other, and, despite the hotel apparently being very full, the receptionist pleasantly re-allocated us to rooms next door to each other. perfect.
unfortunately, despite being on a non-smoking floor, the previous occupant of our room had obviously been a 40 a day man, because despite the best efforts of the house keeping staff to mask the odour, the room smelt like a vast stale ashtray. absolutely awful.
back down to reception, and the same receptionist together with the duty manager were apologetic and exemplary in finding another suitable room on the same floor.
we had a brief drink and some snacks in the bar; nice but pricey, but no surprise there.
parking is free in the hotel's own car park; the reception will validate your ticket.
all in all, an outstanding hotel; its outrageous and certainly not the fault of the hotel if guests smoke in non-smoking rooms. it would be nice if they could find the culprit and charge him for an intensive clean of the room.
