Stayed at this hotel in July 2014. A family stay 2 adults and two children, spent one night. Check in was very quick and informative. I was advised of the location of the lift and the bedroom, I was given my voucher with the code for the premium internet access on arrival.
The bedroom room 922 was a large, clean and nice room, it overlooked the side road near the hotel which was fine as we could see our car from the bedroom window.
The room comprised of a double bed and a made up sofa bed for the children to sleep on.
The beds were very comfortable with starched fresh white bed linen. The pillows were a little soft and thin which was not a huge problem just my personal preference. The décor in the bedroom was clean neutral lines which made the experience all the more relaxing.
There was a bit of noise within the hotels with other individuals clearly forgetting that they are in a hotel and making noise banging doors and shouting. Walls between the room are very thin, I was able to hear various noises from the occupants next door that I did not really want to hear at 3am.
Overall had a nice relaxing sleep as did the rest of my family.
Breakfast service on Sunday is between 07.30-11am this is a good timeframe especially for those who like a little lie in on a Sunday morning.
We went to breakfast at 10am, were greeted by a friendly male who took our room number and advised us to help ourselves to the buffet.
The cooked breakfast buffet was poorly stocked I had to ask for baked beans, bacon, fried eggs. They did come out eventually but were overcooked or not warm enough. The tables were not laid with cutlery, therefore once seated we had to go and source the cutlery which was dirty. Then I made a cup of tea but most of the mugs were dirty, the tea pots were stained on the inside. Generally a very poor lack of hygiene within the restaurant, the waiting staff were not friendly there was no cheery 'good morning' to the guests. There was no sugar / milk on the table. Most of the time I was in the breakfast restaurant I spent walking around sourcing clean cutlery, food, sugar, etc. This was not my ideal relaxing Sunday morning breakfast.
The communal areas of the hotel were very clean, the bar area is a small intimate area it is clean, prices are the usual inflated hotel prices however quick prompt friendly service.
Would we return here?
Yes I would return but it would be nice if standards within breakfast are improve so that I can have confidence in where I am eating.
A point to note is there is no car park at this hotel apart from two disabled spaces at the entrance. For others it is on road parking which is a minimal cost on a Sunday. However if you are staying on a Saturday night then you are required to begin paying for parking from 8am. Otherwise you will receive a parking ticket like we did and many others who were also parked on Walpole Road.
