A Travelzoo voucher was the reason for our visit to this hotel! whilst a few reviews seemed to be less than totally happy with the hotel I for one and the. wife for another one were totally and utterly pleased with the overnight stay. On arrival at the hotel the receptionist was extremely pleasant and efficient in dealing with our booking in and it took less than a minuet to get us booked in and on our way to a nice quiet room, there was a wedding function taking place that evening but the receptionist assured my of a quiet room, and it was perfect. the room was very clean and tidy and the bathroom was outstanding and very modern (never used a square toilet before?) using the shower was an experience on its own! super powerful and super hot.
The bar was very busy with there being a wedding reception taking place, but the service was quite good and the staff very pleasant (my only complaint would be that why oh why do all hotels have to charge so much for soft drinks?)
On arrival at the dining room we were showing to our table by a very delightful young lady, who then took our drinks order and presented us with the evenings menu. being of the Travelzoo option only allowed us a two course meal but we opted for the three course for an extra £5. there was a bit of a wait for the first course to arrive, but as the food is freshly made it was well worthwhile. the service was very good and there was a nice pleasant gap between each course.
An excellent nights sleep on excellent comfortable beds allowed us to wake in the morning both relaxed a looking forward to a full English breakfast, and we were not disappointed! the breakfast was one on the best we have had at busy hotels, again service was good and efficient without being overbearing.
Well done to all the staff for a wonderful nights stay.
