We recently (Oct 18th) stayed here after purchasing a room on the De Vere website for just £19.
We arrived rather late (9ish) so didn't get to see much of the hotel and went straight to our room which was clean, a good size and well equiped. It had a nice bathroom but the toilet didn't flush properly but we managed ok with it for that night. The walls in the hotel must be very thin as we could clearly hear people walking, TVs and even a kettle boiling in the neighbouring rooms. Floorboards were extremely noisy and I don't just mean in the floor above us. This was an annoyance but didn't spoil our time there too much. After an average night's sleep we got up early to use the swimming pool and sauna. The pool was quite warm, which was a plus, and the pool reasonably quiet as it was quite early. On our way to the swimming pool we mentioned to the receptionist about the problem with the toilet and she said that she would get the problem sorted. When we returned to our room about an hour later we found that no-one had been to fix the toilet.
We decided against having breakfast as it was £13.50 a head which we thought was excessive.
As we only paid £19 for the room I thought we had good value for money but if we had paid a normal room rate I would have been dissatisfied. After reading one of the previous reviews about the couple who were very poorly treated, I feel rather fortunate as it seemed like we were staying in the middle of a management changeover period and only two days before the other couple were turned away. It seems odd that you can still go on the De Vere website and book a room here if they have new management.
