Friday & Saturday stay with an evening meal arranged for the Saturday. Quality of the hotel Ok for the price - in need of some refurbishment e.g. 'Jenny's' dining room chairs. Public and corridor areas etc clean enough, but could be a little better. Single room Ok size and facilities wise, bathroom good but the room proved quite noisy during...

Doesn't live up to the title of country house. Is in need of facelift across the hotel reception, lobby and the room. Walls are covered in scrapes and marks. Stained mattress. Definitely not worth the £100 that we spent.

As a stopover for an early flight, this hotel was more than adequate. Large twin room, clean and comfy. Staff were, polite, cheerful and helpful. We didn't eat but I was more than happy with the price as it included car parking. The shuttle bus was easy and hassle free both ways, twenty minutes to the entrance, and especially as...

We have just stayed 1 night at this Hotel. The room we had was not as you would expect from a national company, very uncomfortable bed (you could feel springs) & pillows. This is the first Hotel that we have stayed in for years with a 4ft 6inch bed! Breakfast was very basic & poor quality. We were very concerned...

Very cold in the room and main areas of the hotel. Looks like a hotel from the outside but inside experience was more like a cheap B&B.Brown stains on one of the towels put on the handrail after the housekeeping staff had been in. Ironing room on the other side of the hotel which wasnt very convenient. Breakfast was ok...

I wanted to like this hotel so much. We arrived and were really impressed by the fact that it felt as though it was in the middle of the country, even though it's conveniently located for the city and airport. Our room was also perfectly fine, even if there weren't many towels and the towels themselves weren't very big. However,...
