I was only here for one night, and it was pretty easy to find, well sign-posted once you get off the M4.
The drive up to the hotel was a long private road with LOTS of speed humps!
However there were plenty of parking spaces, but it was a very busy place. as I was pulling up I was expecting it to look a little like the photo of the stately home, but it wasn't. It is a purpose built conference centre that has a plethora of facilities and bedrooms.
As it is a conference centre I can imagine that it is used an awful lot and the rooms are looking like they have seen some better days.
Anyway check-in was OK, please note that they take credit cards for extras if you would like (I always use a debit card so I wouldn't recommend handing that over as it takes ages to get the money back onto the card).
My room was on the ground floor, right along one of the very long corridors. The room was a good size, and it was clean enough, but it was just bored - it looked so tired and a bit dated. There wasn't even a picture on the walls!
Plenty of pillows, and towels, which is always a good thing, and free wifi - which is always a bonus. I had a lovely quiet night's sleep. The bed was comfy but the room could do with an up to date clock. Not the cream plastic 1970's model that was unplugged beside the bed!
I didn't do breakfast but there was a restaurant and coffee stations in the main 'street'.
I think I would stay here again for the price that I paid it was a bit of a bargain - so as long as the price was right it would be fine.
