I was here for company away day for 2 days and one night.
The bedrooms were reasonable and the bed comfortable and the room was clean, although not in a brilliant state of repair. The showers were full of hot water and easy to use.
Dinner in a private room was not a great experience. The room was totally lacking in atmosphere - just some flowers would have done something! We were asked if we wanted anything to drink but had to ask for the wine list. When we ordered some wine we were then told they didn't have any of the white we asked for, although a stray bottle appeared later. The starters took some time to appear even though we had ordered in advance. The main courses went downhill. People who ordered the salmon found it ranged from being almost raw to nearly cooked okay. My pork chop (or rather 2 massive chops) were overlooked and very tough. The portions could be very easily reduced in size and still fill people up. To be fair we were offered complimentary wine and cheese because of the problems with the food without prompting so that was at least good.
Breakfast was okay but nothing special and probably at the level you would expect for a hotel in this price range. A pot of tea rather than a mug would have been nicer.
The meeting room coffee machine was inadequate for the number of people in the room and kept breaking down - very annoying for those of us needing a regular caffeine fix!
The design of the hotel wasn't great but we can blame the original architects for that! The carpets in the corridors were worn in places and the bar totally lacked atmosphere
