We stayed here for a family wedding in March. On initial arrival I was impressed. The hotel seemed to have more than a standard holiday Inn. There was a pool, steam room and sauna, a fairly modern looking entrance with good sized bar and restaurant in the rear and a warm greeting from the staff on reception.
It wasn't until we reached the room that I could find anything to moan about. Firstly, we had brought our young son with us for our first time away as a young family. Therefore due to a mixture of our school boy error and the hotels poor judgement we were given a room at the other end of the building which was down some stairs, up stairs and then right at the end of an incredibly long corridor. Thinking about things now, we should have asked for a more convenient room or alternatively, knowing the hotel had no lift they could have put us much closer. It took us one he'll of a struggle to get to the room.
The room itself was the exact size I would expect from the Holiday Inn. It wasn't at all modern with a small old tv, standard size en-suite which was in desperate need of a refurb and the thinnest walls. So much so that I had to check we'd closed the door on several occasions as you could hear every word as people were going down the corridor. My biggest gripe however, was the wi-fi. The hotels literature stated that there was wi-fi throughout. However this simply wasn't the case. The coverage was poor and in our room we received it in a tiny corner and the actual connection was incredibly poor.
The wedding itself was a lovely day. There was another function going on at the same time in a function room down the corridor. However both rooms had a separate bar away from the residents bar enabling the day and night to go smoothly. The staff seemed well trained and were all polite and efficient during the wedding breakfast and the evening. I got this impression throughout the entire building in fact. Everyone seemed warm from the housekeeping staff, reception, gym, bar and waiting on.
All in all out stay was enjoyable but with a bit of investment this hotel could be great.
