On paper the hotel appears to have everything you'd need, but once you scratch below the surface you realise that it badly needs some work. The lobby and bar area give a good first impression, and the room was nicely decorated and comfortable. Other reviewers have criticised the rooms' condition but I think that some may have been refurbished as ours was fine. However, a remote control for the TV would have been welcome, as would a key fob that might fit in the average pocket.
The "leisure centre" however was badly run down. At least three machines in the gym did not work, the jacuzzi did not work (though was later fixed), the lockers did not lock, showers, toilets, all in a poor state of repair.
Generally the whole place just seemed very dated compared to other hotel chains, which is a shame as it's almost a very nice place to stay.
