Just come back from a " Groupon £79 Overnight Deal " we went with an open mind having read the reviews and for the £79 Deal price feel we got good value for money, on arrival the receptionist was polite and directed us to our room, enroute to the Garden Rooms i could smell the musty smell from a previous review and would say it is isolated to the pool/gym area bit of a sweaty " Locker Room Smell " once past it the air cleared and up to the room we stayed in room 65 the room was clean and well appointed the solid wood furniture was starting to show wear but no worse than more expensive hotels i have stayed in, plenty of coffee/tea and six mini milk pots (not the usual stingy 2 as is the norm these days!!) plenty of freeview channels on the TV and a very comfy bed!!!! only downside was the bathroom i just wish the cleaning staff would bleach the tile grout to remove black mould again we see this more and more these days in older hotels we all do it at home so why does house keeping not pick up on this? also the bath side panel was broken and a hot tap that hits on the tiles with every quater of a revolution (bad installation). Looking through the room service menu average sandwich price is £7.00 as time was getting on we opted to get some bar snacks and save ourselves for dinner, at the bar vodka/coke, large glass pinot grigio, bag of peanuts & bag of chrisps £12.65 little on the pricey side so rather than rack up a bar bill opted to eat out that night ( if only the management could see people would order more drink if they didnt feel they were having their pants pulled down!!!! ) Decided to eat at Simply Italian in Rye service was a little on the slow side but the food is excellent and worth the wait! Had a good nights sleep on a very comfy bed, breakfast served up untill 10am, dining area is spacious with nice views over the grounds, very varied continental selection and several juice's available but had to go for the full english very polite waitress and lovely food only gutting thing was when the man on the next table asked for extra sausages and i hadn't and they were lovely!!!! room check out is Midday so you can get a lay in, still have your breakfast by 10.00 and your not getting rushed out of your room!!! Overall we felt we got good value for money with our Groupon Deal, would i feel the same way at the rack rate of £175, no i would not is the answer ! the Hotel has many good points but is in need of some TLC in places we would definately stay again when the offers are available..
