If you are visiting for a football match (like we were) this is the perfect hotel. On a freezing cold day, I was in my warm room in little over a minute after the final whistle.
I left it a bit late to book for a match day so was unable to bag a pitch view room, but the room we had was good. Good bed and very clear and serviceable.
However, the TV was like something from the 1990's. The hotel needs to realise all programs are in wide screen now, and the only thing this relic would have been good for would have been Donkey, Kong, Pac Man or Space Invaders.
We had dinner in the main restaurant, which was at best, just about OK. 3 Steaks were ordered Rare. One was medium, one was well done and the other would have snapped in half and given me splinters if I had bent it in half.
However, a complimentary bottle of wine was offered as an apology and 3 more steaks - medium were soon wheeled out. I realised this was as good as it was going to get, so didn't make another complaint - plus the wine was very nice!
Breakfast was comparable to that of a Premier Inn in terms of selection and quality, although a bit more expensive. Nothing to fault in particular, but next time I would give this a miss.
All the staff were very friendly and the pool was excellent, although the Jacuzzi was shut. It had been for some weeks we were told, so this could have easily been relayed at booking.
Our visit was on a cold March day, so the lack of air conditioning in the room was not a bother.
I would return here without a doubt. Next time though, I would look at the fixtures and book early to try and secure a pitch view room. I would also make use of the eateries on the retail park rather than the hotels restaurant.
Overall a modern, clean hotel, however, if you were not coming to a football match, I have no idea why this location would appeal to anyone - unless they were a fast food freak and wanted to be within a 5 minute walk of Pizza Hut, MacDonalds, Subway, KFC, Nando's and others I can't remember!
