I have stayed in this Best Western several time and efficiency is consistent, great staff at reception as well as in the bar and restaurant area.
The Italian restaurant is pleasant and you feel that the food is made on the premises.
My partner and myself were there on a Friday night, just having a drink before going to town, come 7pm, few people started to arrive at the restaurant, warmly greeted, a nice ambiance, and unexpectedly we were given a plate of warm ciabatta to nibble on, such a nice touch, much appreciated! The other thing I have noticed is that some of the staff and the people working in the kitchen seems to be Italians, so authentic cuisine.
I like the Atlantic Hotel as it is close to town, clean with an edgy modern feel, I have stayed in the County Hotel, which seems to have a more traditional feel and it is in a fine building, but the room are dated and our room had a rather than large damp patch on the wall, breakfast was good though and the staff was professional too.
We live in the Cotswolds and we do like a traditional feel to thing, but if it comes with a massive damp patch on the wall and a rather dodgy toilet flush, then no thank you!! stick with the modern hotel like the Atlantic.
Finally, the night bar is good for a last night cap before retiring to the bedroom.
Rooms are good, spacious, nice complementary bottle of water,free Wifi, yes no biki as previous comment. I don't want biki in the coffee tray, I much rather a chocolate on the pillow!!
