Having requested a room in a quiet location, we were initially pleased to find that our room was at the rear overlooking the golf course. However, it immediately became apparent that this room (and presumably the others) lacks secondary glazing so the drone of the adjacent, eternally busy, A45 droned all day and, especially noticeably for light sleepers, all night. Surely the investment in decent soundproofing would be worthwhile. In addition, the noise from air-conditioners in adjacent rooms permeated on and off all night.
Avoid the rip off WiFi rates in the rooms (£6/hour, £15/24 hours) by using the free WiFi in the public areas. Unfortunately, it's not possible to avoid the 'Sky-Hi' priced drinks at the bar. The food was average, and the service good - when it arrived.
Be prepared for lots of unsupervised children racing around corridors at weekends as their parents presumably relax in the bar. There were two weddings on at the time of our visit, and thankfully our room was well away from any noise that would have been generated by them.
