Stayed at this grand hotel for 2 nights, the room had a lovely view over the front of the hotel. But unforunatly it was next to the lift which was having problems so the doors opened and shut at will and rumbled throught the day, so ear plugs were necessary at night, but still felt the vibrations through the pillow. The batheroom would have been a problem if I was any larger as it was very small the the loo in a small space next to the shower. The bed was very comfortable and bedding and towels good quality.
We went to the restuarant for our evening meal which we had booked in advance, but a very limiated menu for a Sunday evening and no prices on the menu and had to ask for the prices but the waitress had to look on the computer for the prices, the same with the wine menu!!The second night we ate in the bar lounge but again had to ask for the menu to be found for the meal deal that was advertised in the lift as a meal and a drink for£ 9.95 which was good value and tasty.
We aslo used the spa, but it was looking a little dated and needed some tlc
Breakfast was good and the staff attentive.
I must admit that after staying at other 4*hotels it was the first time we have been charged £4.50 per night to park when the barriers were up so anyone could drive in and park !!
All in al it was a pleasant stay with a few niggles that could be corrected.
