On arrival the hotel seemed good, plenty of free secure parking, really friendly and helpful receptionist, clean modern building and room. The entertainment system on the tv was really user friendly and a nice added extra.
the bar was much smaller than we thought it would be for such a big hotel, there isn't a great selection for lunch and its over priced. We left straight after eating because the bar and upstairs lobby were doubled up as a playground. There were kids running everywhere without any obvious supervision. Some of the kids were throwing ice off the balcony which we informed staff about. We had planned to relax in the hotel for the afternoon but this was out of the question, we had to go to a pub in town.
Dinner was included in our deal. It was only ok, nothing more than that, quite bland.
Breakfast buffet was good, good selection, and quality and all fresh and hot. We ordered a portion of poached eggs that took 20 minutes or more to arrive are were the worst poached eggs ive ever seen. the breakfast staff all looked like they didnt want to be there, they had miserable faces and barely spoke when they had to.
the spa is lovely and ok value.
all in all its a nice hotel, good location but far from perfect and i dont know if i would return because of the bar.
