Stayed for one night for dinner bed and breakfast. Room was lovely- very spacious. Leisure facilities appeared good- although only used the pool, sauna and steam; which were all on the small side for a hotel this big.
Hotel had a cavernous feel; all our meals served in 'Squires' restaurant' which was basically a lobby, and felt as if sitting in a shopping centre-not what was expecting for a 5 star. General meal choices appeared good, if you're not a vegetarian.
Veggie starters- tomato soup, or salad- very uninspiring. Veggie choices for dinner included the usual risotto, and vegetable tart. This was basically some roasted veg, on a puff pastry base- with no sauce. Completely tasteless and not filling. Accompanying it were two dry breadsticks! Non veg choices also tiny portions- with no accompanying veg. Needless to say, we both felt very hungry after. Furthermore, no bread was offered before which I would have expected for a 5 star hotel.
Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice- although vegetarians not well catered for- only usual scrambled egg, hash browns, beans. Would have expected veggie sausages etc for a supposedly 5 star hotel.
Overall, I would say this is a 4 star hotel- it is very misleading to market it as 5 star. It is definitely not worth the rates- felt very disappointed by it as was expecting a bit of luxury for what we paid. Definitely would not go back- and would not recommend to any friends or family.
