We stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and thought it might be different this time, but no. It has all the mod cons and spaciousness but lacks a spirit and soul that would make it truly special. Stark, barren, austere. Staff were friendly enough and the spa area staff were wonderful. This was not our first choice to stay given that we had lived in the town a few years ago but we were hopeful that things would be different. No. The hotel has a captive audience in the area and no other competitors at that level however, there are other older and newer establishments in the area that may not have the level of sophistication but have the character we wanted. Won't try a third time.
