First impressions weren't very good. The receptionist was obviously having a bad day. Gave us our room card but didn't give any information about meal times, how to book a table for diner or about the spa facilities.
Very little information in the room so as a result we went down for diner (we were staying on DBB deal) butr had to wait 45 mins for an available table. However the meal was very good.
Breakfast the following morning - great choices but I had to ask for the fruit bowls to be refilled.
The room was very dated (which I had expected given previous reviews) and the bathroom could have been cleaned better (dust behind the toilet) but overall not bad value for money. Geat location within and easy 5 mins of town centre but don't usually expect to have to pay £4.50 car parking for an overnight stay
