Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel.
Ist the negative.. We upgraded to the Club room. When we arrived after a 6 hour car journey, we were told our room wasn't ready as they hadn't put any of the upgrade in. After 40 minutes we were told that our room was ready. We went up to our room and yes you had 2 big white dressing gowns, slippers and gift bag of mini toiletries with a sewing kit and shaving set . Then there was the basket of fruit which looked like it came out of another room and was very sparce , grapes that should have been thrown a day or 2 ago. 2 oranges and apples and banana's. The savoury snacks was 2 packets of walkers crisps and 2 packets of bobby nuts. The shortbread was just what you would have complimentry with your tea and coffee .. The bottle of still and sparkling water is what you would expect any way. The wine was red and white and and you had a bottle of each containing 185ml's. Not even a large glass of wine. The next night they replaced the water, wine, crisps and added kiwi fruit and a pear to the fruit bowl.. Still no flowers or a paper. That cost £50.00.
Now for the good bits. This hotel is in a perfect location both lovely views from both the front and side of the hotel. The room which I am glad to say was actually too warm and needed to have the window open throughout the night. The room was a fair size and the bed comfortable. The bathroom ok too with a really powerful shower and lovely and hot. We were on the 1st floor right next to the noisy lift which staff seemed to use during the night. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and highly recommended. The sauasges and scrambled eggs were yummie.. There was a very good selection and something for everyone.
My only complaint is the Club upgrade. Maybe for one night just for the dressing gowns and toiletries. Learnt a lesson and wont do it again here ..
