Nice enough rooms. Good selection of teas/coffee/hot chocolate and more and bottle of water. Modern and decent size tv with freeview with sky sports and sky one. Powerful shower. Wifi can be a bit temperamental and disconnects often, seems to differ from room to room though. Wifi speed measured at 2Mbps so once you get a signal it's fairly decent. The restaurant leaves a lot to be dessired. Didnt have great expectations although was pleasantly surprised by the selection available. However I'm afraid to say the execution was pretty poor. Steaks did not seem to be great quality and would be surprised if they weren't supermarket bought. Fish was overcooked. Chips pretty tasteless. I have no idea why these aren't fresh cut chips rather than frozen out of a bag. There are also some bizarre combinations such as steamed mussels with grated cheese. I think they would be better going back to basics and making really simple good tasting food.
Overall it's fairly good value and rooms are good. If stairs are an issue for you then this isn't the hotel for you but for most people it isn't an problem. Stayed during the week so can't comment on the noise from 'event nights' but it was perfectly quiet during the week. Pool and gym facilities were good. Just do yourself a favour and don't eat in the hotel if you would like a good meal.
