I had read mixed reviews of this hotel but really enjoyed my stay. The staff were attentive and friendly and the lobby/restaurants/meeting rooms have been recently refurbished and are excellent. The hotel facilities are large and very good, especially the deserted and very clean 25m pool. The room are large, comfortable and clean even if the "Versailles" decor is a little out of keeping with the rest of the hotel's more contemporary feel! Breakfast on this full occupancy day was crowded but the food was of a high standard as was the a la carte lunch and the dinner in the excellent Chinese restaurant. This hotel is trying very hard to be great, and when the guest room refurbishment is completed later this year I think it will be. In the meantime, this is a great option for a reasonably priced leisure break away from the city centre, or for a corporate meeting/event. I am not a golfer, but they also apparently now do a very well priced golf package if you fancy playing on a Jack Nicklaus-designed course.
