We held a university reunion here. Ten of us, with 6 of us staying over. It was Saturday night and the whole place was absolutely heaving. Bearing in mind how busy the restuarant was, the service was timely and the staff were very good all evening. The food wasn't stellar but was good.
The hotel has recently undergone a major refurbishment and our room was very stylist and well equipped. However, it was a bit cold and turning the radiator up didn't make much difference. My wife was irritated that there wasn't a full length mirror, or a mirror that you could use while drying your hair.
An amazing oversight is no shaver plug in the bathroom. Apart from not be able to charge an electric toothbrush, quite what a chap is meant to do it he doesn't wet shave I don't know!
These were minor irritants that hopefully will be sorted out. Apart from these, a very nice hotel, and particularly good staff.
