The hotel has had a refurb since I last stayed about two years ago. The reception area certainly is very modern, with the restaurant and bar having been upgraded too.
On arrival, on a very hot day, it was nice and cool in reception, check in was quick, with friendly staff and an offer of assistance with bags. Which is rare.
I was given all the usual info about meal times etc.
the room was spacious, excellent toiletries including cotton wool and a nail file. The bathroom was clean and the toilet was totally separate and away from the shower.
There is an iron in the room but one of the plugs wasn't working!! Took me a few minutes to work that out.
The hotel is in a key location on the Main Street with plenty of bars, restaurants and even a sainsburys next door. It is within walking distance from the train station and the shopping centre.
I have no negatives on this place.
Sleep quality was really good. I slept better than I had in days, the cool room helped.
I ordered room service which was efficient. The staff ring and let you know when it's on it's way up!! It was well presented and good portions. The breakfast was a good experience too with plenty of choice and really helpful staff who bought the tea over quickly, I find alot of hotels take ages with this service!!More
