We went on a work celebration weekend, so a mixture of business and pleasure. The rooms where clean and all the staff very helpful.
The food at the hotel was good as long as you are not a vegetarian. For an organised dinner on the Friday night, I was given boiled potatoes with hash browns for my main course. Breakfast was a relaxed self service affair.
On the first night we noticed that our bathroom did not smell great but this seemed to disappear when the room was cleaned, but by lunchtime the following day it was unbearable. We told the staff and the situation was resolved but from my understanding a few others in our party had the same thing.
The location and facilities at the hotel are good but with a few tweeks it really could be much better.
