Room was pretty OK - king sized bed and the normal amenities. What the other reviewers said about the lack of lighting was true - room was a little dark as the few lamps there were quite dim. Came back at about 8:15pm and the carpark was full - had to wait awhile until someone left. We took the dinner and breakfast package. For dinner we ate at Buca (the Italian restaurant) - portions were huge and quality was overall pretty good. The service was great and our waitress accommodated our requests. Breakfast was also served at Buca and was also quite good - traditional British breakfast. Small complaint was at checkout - our bill had an optional GBP1.00 charity donation added which we said was fine. After that they said we had to pay an additional service fee of GBP2.50 for using our credit card. This was not made known anywhere before we booked online or even at check-in. As we were in a hurry, we just paid up and left but felt somewhat peeved at the surprise charges.
