Close to station and town centre, comfortable spacious rooms and friendly helpful staff. Restaurant lacked atmosphere in the evening but food good and lack of space for informal business meeting the following day.

Yes there is a membership but I don’t remember the price which I think it’s really worth for the money as the daily pass was just for 10£
