Stayed here last night for one night with the Mrs. Got a bit lost using my useless satnav. However the parking was a bit confusing as you have the CP car park right next to the Excel Car Park. The CP car park tarrif seemed seriously overpriced so I opted for the Excel car park which was still quite dear!
We came in through the rear entrance into the lobby which was very nice. The pool was was to one side (quite tempted to go in) and restraunt was on the other. The staff were freindly enough. There was supposedly a wedding going in the hotel so we were offered a twin room as opposed to a double, because the double was near where the function was and they might disturb us. We opted for the double as a twin room doesnt exactly cut it for a for a young couple looking for some quality time.
There was a lot of people going in and out. The corridors were nice and clean. The room was nice and spacious. Very nice design and colour scheme. Immediately felt at home.
Ordered some room service. Not too impressed. Food was slightly cold and my grilled duck was way too chargrilled! It all was a bit disappointing to be honest for a 4 start hotel.
Later the wedding was in full swing and we had to bear with some loud music and shouting until we called the reception to do something. This was after midnight as well. So annoying. Eventually they stopped but my wife was so annoyed at this point. It took her ages to get some sleep.
We decided to give breakfast a go. Definately better than dinner the previous night.
End of the day the food for us was the biggest let down. The noise from the wedding didnt help things either...The room was the saving grace, it was lovely, we didnt want to leave....
