5* for staffing. With the single exception of our check in receptionist who was really not very interested in our well-being, we found that every staff member we met went that extra mile to be friendly and supportive. Peter, Sam, June, Kathy plus several others whose names we never knew were really wonderful. Of all the hotels ever stayed in, this was undoubtedly serviced by the finest staff.
The room was exactly as expected for this standard of hotel, although the shower was particularly good.
The food at dinner, prepared by Tony, was exceptionally well cooked, innovative, authentic, delicious and well presented. Regrettably, it was over-priced. Breakfast on our first morning was very average for this standard of hotel and not the greatest - the hot food at the buffet had clearly been sitting around for hours. However, on the second day - when they didn't put out a hot buffet and cooked to order - the 'Full English' was fresh and much better.
The leisure centre, although clean, was in serious need of an upgrade and, not for the first time apparently, the steam room needed repairing.
I'd love to have given this hotel a full five stars. However, because of the breakfast's hot buffet, leisure centre and overpricing in the restaurant - all of which I consider 'poor', I can only give it four stars. Everything else about the hotel, and especially its dedicated staff, was wonderful.
