Would definitely recommend this hotel:
Excellent staff - even down to the cleaners being friendly and helpful - one showed me where I wanted to go when I was looking for the wellness centre from a different angle!
Fantastic breakfast buffet - fresh fruit salad and other fruits, selection of yoghurts, selection of juices, great range of pastries and rolls, cheeses, meats and salamis and cooked breakfast selection, good selection of teas and coffees and again the staff can't be helpful enough - nothing is too much trouble
Free tea and coffee before 5pm
The only things I would change are (and these are being picky!):
our electronic keys kept not working which got quite irritating
the shower smelt slightly musty the first couple of days
no towelling robes - which would have been nicer than using the changing facilities in the wellness centre
tea and coffee stops being free at exactly 5pm, we wanted one at 5:20pm and had to pay, which is fair enough, but would be nice if it was just always free!
the air con/heating system in the room was really slow, it worked it just took hours - so when the room was at 24/25 degrees when we checked in, it didn't come down to a comfortable sleeping temperature till we had set it to 2 degrees c for THREE hours - just open a window instead!!
need the extra pillow, but ask and it'll arrive instantly
no iron in the room, but we asked for one and it arrived instantly
the layout of breakfast - just a bit too dotted about and squeezed in, during busy times there was a lot of squeezing past people and waiting for people to help themselves first
Gym is literally one treadmill, one bike and some free weights.
room service stops at 10pm
But none of those things would put me off going back and the overall hotel/stay was honestly worthy of a 5/5 rating on here.
