I stayed at this hotel in March 2013 for business. It was easy to find with plenty of parking but not much around it. The gym and fitness centre seemed well patronised by locals. Check in was well handled and friendly and I was pleased to be ugraded to a suite in recognition of my Reward Club status.
The suite was very nice with separate bedroom, sitting room, dressing room, lobby and bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the 2 TVs worked fine. The complimentary bottles of water and chocolate bar were also a nice touch. Downside would be heating that relied on radiators and windows that couldonly be opened by staff with a key so if you had the radiators up too high it was hard to cool the room.
Unfortunately the lobby and bar area was a bit of a wide open space off the front doors and not very warm nor characterful. It din't encourage you to linger over a drink.
Restaurant also lacked character and had only one diner in the evning. Prices were significantly higher than the bar menu and room service (even for the same dishes) and so I went back to my room and ordered room service. My fish and chips were very nice and a glass of wine wasn't extortionate (relative to hotel prices generally).
Breakfast service was friendly and the food choice very acceptable.
The hotel was convenient but lacked warmth and atmosphere. Service was very good though.
