I stayed here for a week on business and while the hotel is pleasant enough, I would be annoyed if I was paying for this out of my own pocket. To start on the positives... The pool area is really nice, especially in the evening when there is usually some live music on and a big screen showing any football (with the commentary off) next to the bar area. Dinners were very good (I didn't have the buffet so can't comment) while the breakfast buffet is also enough, with a large pancake/eggs station. The rooms are fine, though only one complimentary bottle of water for the week is a bit of a joke. Furthermore the hotel is missing a trick if it wants to maximise its revenue: why have a mini-bar with bottles in it and then have no bottle opener?
The gym is quite small and going there unfortunately created an issue for me. After running on the treadmill for an hour I went to get some water from the dispenser to drink while I warmed down. But they don't let you fill up your own bottle. Even if you say you only want to put a small amount of water in. And they really let you know this if you happen to do so. Whether this is some strange health and safety reason or they just don't want people to have access to free water anywhere in the complex, I don't know, but there was no need for the attendant to be quite so rude about it.
Other than the rude staff member and the price, I would happily stay here. However, I am sure there are cheaper alternatives available, especially for those paying for it themselves.
