We spent one night here with our teenage son; we used some Marriott points for his room; had a bed and breakfast deal for us.
Reception was good - the young man working there had a red ribbon on, an indiaciton he was new in post and in training he said. His name was Craig Perkins and he handled our check in with aplomb - he was much better than some other hotel reception staff I've met. We were given two adjoining rooms in the quieter part of the hotel as there were 'a couple of parties tonight'; the result was worth the longish walk along the corridors. When had a nice double and our son a twin bed room. Both clean and tidy with the pillow selection, comfy beds and nice bathrooms we like in a Marriott.
There were window seats too - result of being on the first floor (or the 2nd for Amercian friends) a big hit with us.
The leisure centre was ok - the pool not good for lengthy exercise swims - too short for that but it has a large whirlpool, sauna and steam room. Once freshend up from there we went to the bar for a drink and snack before going for our evening out. Good staff member here too - handled rejection of teenagers plea for alcohol very well (he's not old enough and has to stick to soft drinks for now). Snacks were suitably filling then it was tine to get ready and go out. On return we were able to park quite easily, and get up to our rooms. The quiet end lived up to its promise and we were able to sleep in ok. Breakfast was good choice with freshly cooked things done to order such as fried eggs. Only downside was the strong coffee - possibly not too freshly brewed. Staff quite quick at moving plates - we had to watch that. Craig was in place at reception as we checked out again handling it all competently. Location pretty good compromise between main A1 and central Peterborough.
