stayed here for 3 nights on business. The hotel is a good 20 minute walk in the dark from any other civilisation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was a fair size and very clean. The shower was excellent. My room was on the ground floor a fair walk from the main facilities - the hotel is a bit of a rabbit warren. And it was a very warm room - i ended up turning the radiator off and it was minus 3 outside. I had room service on two of the nights - not bad but £5 tray charge is a bit pricy. I also used the gym several times - well equipped and very clean with a friendly chap there to help. Sleep quality was an issue as the room above me appeared to be occupied by somebody wearing hobnail boots who liked to move the furniture. We ate in the hotel restaurant on the third night - we did not fancy walking in the cold and dark! The food was ok but a little expensive. My colleague was esctatic about the choice of ice cream flavours though. Breakfast was a bit of a let down - poor choice of fruit, coffee sat in a help yourself pot stewing. Overall it was ok but I would not want to stay there for work for weeks on end.
