The location is good with a 5 minute drive to the M25 and a brisk 20 minute stroll to Cockfosters Tube. The grounds are lovely and my welcome was very warm and friendly.
The rooms are spacious and the bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast was very good with freshly cooked eggs available and a good selection of other foods.
Three minus points:
The shower was terrible and went from boiling hot to freezing cold and the power was also poor and speaking to my other 6 colleagues this was the same in their rooms too. A nice shower is essential if I am staying in a hotel so this was very disappointing.
The checkout in the morning was terrible and I waited nearly 15 minutes whilst the gentlemen receptionist struggled with payment machines etc. Again 5 minutes is ok but when you are staying away on business and generally in a hurry this is not acceptable.
Last point is the price of drinks which was very high even for outer London and basically meant that none of us drank in the bar in either of the two nights we were there.
