Stayed here for 2 nights, Fri-Sat and of the three couples we had the best room - we upgraded to a club room (405) which was a nice sze, comfortable bed with a good size bathroom but a very weak shower. Our friends had room 204 which had a tiny bathroom and our other friends had an OK room. We only had breakfast which was really good, a good selection of cold foods and a good cooked breakfast. The waitress was a bit too keen to get our orders for hot food and tea/coffee/toast etc. but all in all it is a nice place to stay. There is free parking but the spaces are tight and limited, I would imagine that on a really busy day you would struggle to park.
Access to the health club is a right palava! You have to fil in a medical form, hand over your room key to get a locker and equipment key - I was tired before I got into the gym itself! but when I did get there it was very pleasant with a good selection of equipment and a lovely swimming pool with jacuzzi inside and a hot tub in the serenity garden overlooking the stream at the back of the hotel.
A nice place to stay all in all.
