“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

One night business stay, check in was very quick and easy, staff pleasant and efficient. Room was clean, tidy and spacious. Took evening meal in the restaurant which had a good menu and the food was excellent. Breakfast the next morning was less efficient as the staff looked a little flustered, but to be fair the restaurant was very busy. All in all a good hotel that I would happily recommend.

Excellent hotel and staff. We can't wait to come back!!

The room was amazing, we upgraded, I am pleased we did. Bed was so comfy, showers were incredible. It was extremely clean. Decor and views absolutely brilliant. Quiet too with it being near the airport.

Food was lovely, we ordered room service. We were brought up a glass of champagne complimentary. I am not sure why but it was greatly appreciated. I did ask at reception and they said it was for special occasions. I am unsure if they brought it to the wrong room but we were there for Mothers day, maybe that was why? Either way I would like to thank you.

The swimming area was wonderful, my Daughter loved it!! Nicely heated suitable for her too. There is no baby pool but she was ok.

They do spa treatments but we didn't have any of these. Not badly priced though.

Stayed here the night before we flew to Majorca found the Hotel really easy - check in was quick the young lady was extremely pleasant and gave us all the necessary information - our room for three was spacious nice big bed very comfortable - swimming pool provided towels to use - food & drink good - we were picked up & taken to the airport by Taxi after a complementary hot drink - on our return to East Midlands it was easy to contact the hotel for our return pickup which arrived very quickly the young driver Jimmy was great he collected our baggage and dropped us off right by the car would definitely use this hotel again as first class service
