Booked Hotel for Friday night double room. Firstly getting there yes its through industrial area but if like us its in evening and dark then you'll fail to notice the final sign(small) at the T junction by the tyre warehouse on street lamp-post showing left turn, We turned right and drove for a while as nobody about to ask, so please turn left and then drive for good 5 minutes and you'll see the sign for hotel. First impression car park by the reception has no lamp post so its in darkness. The overspill car park is lit. Reception looked cold and uninviting, but friendly and cheerful staff so that's a plus, given a ground floor room and the room was clean nice and the ac worked which pleased my wife she likes to turn on the heating up.Beds looked nice but i sunk in more then usual so they will need changing soon as its loosing its firmness, but we spent a comfortable night slept well and couldn't hear any traffic or other noise (our room 33). The bathroom makes up for any other downside massive bathtub well lit room and good power shower enclosed , not above the bath (i like). Massive TV and hotel information on remote select from gym to bar and restaurant. btw- the restaurant information is still showing last summers information. Complimentary water in room is only 500ml sparkling so BYO if you need more fresh drinking water. Swimming pool and hot tub checked out was excellent. Bar has comfortable sofas etc only problem was price and availability, Spirit shot £7 Baileys shot £7 so i asked for Rare JB on list was told it sold out so had F Grouse and was charged for Jim Beam was refunded difference. Good points for bar - Its staff very helpful and took care of all guests worth going back after a day out and pay the high price just to get good service while you chill.
Next day breakfast at 10:30 again well worth writing home about. lots of cold meats, speciality breads, cereals, and hot food. Had hot bfast and was pleased with service from happy staff also they had 2 choice of sausages Cumberland or leek & something, Bacon had 2 choice as well streaky or back. My compliments on the scrambled egg cooked well and creamy not like some fast food places.They didn't rush you out and ambience was good.Stayed till 11.00 and still serving other guests which was good. Check out quick and easy didn't use mini bar but they still holding on to my £50 credit card payment as refund takes 10days so hotel is enjoying my £50 credit interest free for 10 days. Must remember to say no next time as its not compulsory. Overall good hotel good service but primerley its a business hotel first, mostly for business and trade people and then us the weekender. Also had dinner out of town at the Royal Oak check out review there. Hope this helps.
