The rooms: are old looking but you can tell that a lot of money was spent on them as the quality space and layout is quite nice.
The location: is not ideal unless you have a car. This place offers excellent service probably better than most 5 star hotels. The reason is simple the hotel promotes itself as a business conference centre and in that respect the staff will offer you a tailor built service.
Parking: Not an issue as they have loads of space, but be warned even as a resident at the hotel you will have to pay a fee of £5 for parking in their car park.
Fitness centre- The most important thing for me was that their was a indoor pool which was nice a warm nearly, nearly hot Brilliant! but most of all a gym with both cardio machines and free weights. If there is something missing like a bench press ask! they will assemble one! they also have excellent supplements such as a protein drink costing £2 only with 40g of protein! pool large size. there was also a sauna.
Bar: very nice bar lovely lighting and atmosphere also good for small personal business meetings. example of prices beers average £5 whisky over £5 a double espresso and a late machiato costs £8.
Restaurant: the food here is not bad but not to great. asked for my ribeye rear but it came med to well. In all excluding drinks a very small ribeye 8 oz a soup and desert costs £32. The quality of the cut was not as good as the food you would find in a pub either. Desserts were fantastic.
General hotel appearance - Pretty well laid out, old style but with a rich feel I would give it an 8.0 out of 10; for a 4 star hotel.
cleanliness: Superb 10 on 10.
Politeness & helpfulness of staff: second to none and so patient even with unnecessarily rude people!
Would I recommend: yes but look around for better deals in closer locations before.
