My visit to this hotel was based on the fact that I was attending The FA's Licensed Coaches Club Conference 2012 but I would certainly come back again simply for the hotel and the staff were keen to point out to all of us coaches that although the hotel is a partner with and used by the National Football Centre (A hundred metres down the path) it is by no means exclusively for the use of those visiting the NFC.
I don't normally stay in 4* hotels...I'm quite happy to stay in a Premier Inn but I must say that the rooms were absolutely impeccable and easily the best hotel I've ever stayed in. A 40"+ flat screen in the room with Sky, huge bed, spotless bathroom (Waterfall taps, non-slam toilet seat, seperate bath and shower) that even included a TV speaker with adjustable volume and views of the rolling fields outside. The lunch, breakfast and gala dinner at the conference were provided by the Hilton restaurant and for food that was made to be served to 250+ people it was a high standard.
+ Worth a treat stay. Great hotel in beautiful grounds.
+ For football fans, it would certainly be worth combining with a tour of the new football centre.
+ Amazing rooms.
- For a getaway it's great, but there isn't a massive amount to do surrounding the hotel that I saw on the way in.
