I cannot comment on the rooms as we were staying next door but were sent for dinner over to Fountain Hotel. We were early so the Manager asked us to relax in the bar for about 20 minutes while the buffet dinner was being laid. The staff was very friendly. It was a well laid buffet with plenty of choice....

I liked the inside of the rooms and also the dining room. The renovations made what was meant to be a lovely afternoon unbearable. It will definitely be a great hotel after they are done. Housekeeping seemed to be on top of their game with crisp sheets and restocked supplies. No bumps on the bed. But the window cleaning seemed... More

We were a group of 20 on a study tour, and due to badly managed arrangements at another hotel we moved to Fountains Hotel at short notice. The staff were superbly helpful and met all our needs including conference facilities. All our participants were very satisfied and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Well done Jacky and staff!

Did not stay at this hotel but went in for Sunday lunch ( due to room not ready at next door hotel ). The buffet is rather simple with not so many items but the price is low so no complaints. Wine was simple but good enough for lunch....

The stay was pleasant, overall good cleanliness in the rooms and the staff is very helpful. They can find better ways of reminding guests of checkout time though, they basically kick you out - we had a manager and a cleaner knocking furiously outside our door, we were 30 min late.
