We stayed one night on a voucher deal. We managed to park easily in the hotel car park and was happy with the charge of less than £5 for 24 hours parking. On entering the hotel first impressions were good as it's very grand and you can imagine in its day it was the talk of the town! The man... More

We booked a double room for one night. This was also our wedding night. When we got to the room we were greeted by a wall of heat. The radiator was on full blast, the weather was mild, so no need for it to be on. On trying to open the windows we found they were painted so much they... More

Most are relatively pleasant young people who are trying to earn a bit of money but hardly any had received any training! A few examples may help: • Check-in was slow – three... More

September 2016 - The hotel must have been magnificent in the early Spa days but now feels tired and in need of some love and care to restore it. However the room and common areas were kept clean and the food was on the whole very good. The dining room can be crowded and staffing levels mean that service can... More
