I stayed one night and as I got a very good initial price from a hotel comparison site upgraded on arrival to a Club Room. The room was excellent. Spaciuos, well furnished, huge flat screen TV on the wall, beautiful, well equipped bathroom, large comfortable bed, nice toiletries and even a TV built into tyhe wall at the end of the bath to watch TV whilst soaking. I used the gym which was well equipped and the sauna, which wqas very snall (max 3 persons!) but at least they have a sauna (and a steam room). Pool was a good size. Breakfast was very good indeed, a well stocked buffet with a wide choice of hot/cold food, fruts, cereals, cooked items etc. Parking at the hotel wasl imited and costs £10 (shame they do not offer free parking for guests). Club lounge was average, not much atmosphere but offered a few nibbles (very few) and drinks early evening as well as wi-fi, TV and a more peaceful place to relax/work. The biggest plus point though in my experience here was the freindliness and efficiency of the staff. Every one I spoke to from reception, housekeeping, health club, bar and restuarant were totally charming and helpful - not so usual these days in British hotels so they deserve much credit. My only gripe was that the corrideors on the guest floors were dingy and the carpets dirty - needs upgrading but that is a big job. However, as soon as I walked into the "Club room" section of the floor (accessible by key card) everything was spic and span. Hotel is thoroughly recommended - but suggest you invest in a Club room upgrade as standard rooms look a little on the small side.
