Being a Saga-owned/run hotel and having never previously tried them, I read the trip advisor reviews and, despite reservations about barking dogs, books anyway (Sep12). Placed in ground floor room - in what was previously a storage area I understand - which had full width glass and excellent sound proofing compared with other rooms on other floors of main block. Room well appointed and cleaning staff excellent. Food and drink very good. Be warned the 10am pool drinks service doesn't usually surface until after 10:15 (probably due to only paying the person from 10am so, quite rightly only appears at 10am).
Promised self-service Laundry facility when booked only to find this not the case. Significance being we had travelled from Durham to London for a 4 days stay before flying to St Lucia in my MX5, which doesn't exactly hold the earth. If we had known we would have gone in my partners car, which does!
Chose Virgin flights as we had previously only used BA - no difference between them that I preceived.
Would recommed for a relaxing break and the included SAGA excursions were very good.
