What a let down. The website states luxury, but the rooms nor common areas show any sign of it. I am not sure who gave this hotel it's 4* rating but a pool should not be the only thing required to raise it from a 3*, which is what it is at best. The rooms are hot & the windows... More

Ordering a Pint of Peroni tonight a fellow customer said, wow that's London prices when a pint cost £5:10.... Food is hit and miss at times with some plates returned to the kitchen to be redone or corrected. Menu is limited, especially for those staying at odd times. Staff however are really good on front of house. Overall 3.5/5.

On arriving in the car park you could be forgiven for thinking you are at a Premier Inn, but as soon as you enter the foyer there the comparison ends. My wife and I had booked this hotel for three nights through Groupon and had to book for one night followed by two nights. Our concern was that we may... More

The hotel was lovely, bed was comfy, room was very clean, breakfast was lovely, only problem we had was that the rooms were quite hot! A fan was provided but was still quite hot. Location was good there were supermarkets, places to eat and shops around. Although the restaurant looked lovely in the evenings we didn't eat I'm there. Overall... More

We have been here twice now. Both times the stay has been very enjoyable. Even though it was busy we had no problem checking in, no problem ordering at the bar, or being seated at our evening meal or breakfast. The room was nice, bed was comfy and the spa relaxing. A few families were there with children but that... More

After a very stressful few weeks, my husband and I were looking forward to our short stay and weren't disappointed. Staff were helpful and welcoming and on a hot day the free water infused with lemon and mint were extremely welcome.

My daughter and a friend really enjoyed their spa day recently. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They enjoyed the facilities and the two treatments that they received. The food and drink were to a very good standard and they will be definitely visiting again in the near future.

This was a nice place to stay. Nothing special but my daughter chose it because of having a swimming pool so that made her happy. Breakfast was average. Room was big clean and cosy. Nice stay. Ideally located next to the motorway and easy to find. Pretty gardens outside the front of the hotel which are beautifully kept
