This hotel is just off the motorway and was really easy to find. The check-in was nice and friendly and when our key card did not work it was replaced very quickly. Promising to come back with a second key card in a few minutes. This never happened but it was not an issue for us and we would have asked if we did need the second one. We were in the older part of the hotel which is a bit of a maze and really really hot. There was no lift close to our room so we have to drag a lot of bags up a small stairs.
We had arrived late and asked for two rooms next to each other. This was fine on booking, whe I phoned earlier in the day to re-confirm and to remind them of our late arrival we did not have two rooms next to each other but this was sorted out very quickly and was not an issue when we booked in.
The rooms were very hot so I straigh away turned down the heater (I did not realise until 3 am that I had in fact turned it on so work hotter than ever) A few hours with the window open sorted it all out but it did not do my carbon footprint any good.
The leisure centre was excellent.
The gardens were truely superb, botanic garden standard.
The breakfast was busy, there were loads of staff and yet we waited for an age to get served. It was impossible to catch anyones eye which was odd with the number of staff. When they finally realised we were not being served we got no apology.
Our room did not have wifi as we were in the old part of the hotel, so beware if you are a business traveler.
If you are looking for a hotel room with a view then don't stay in the rooms we had, there was no view at all.
All in all I would have no hesitation about staying here again.
