5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a fantastic stay, the staff were helpful, friendly and very professional. The food was excellent, until the continental breakfast on the last morning, portions were tight to say the least, no tea and coffee, despite ordering it, no cutlery, it took three visits back downstairs to sort it, when we eventually ate it, it was mediocre. Only Other sticky point was the extra bed in our family suite for our adult son was a fold out frame 5 inches off the floor which kept collapsing, he ended up sleeping on a thin, single mattress on the floor, he’s 6’ 2 and big built. For this we had to pay an extra £80. All of that being said we would definitely be going back.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Very dated, seemingly only a choice of a tiny box room or a large suite style room. Neither worth the cost. Definitely over priced and the food was terrible. Although they’ve catered for vegan and gluten free food well the “fresh” food was clearly frozen, the fried food was refried so go early otherwise the sausages are tough burnt and oil soaked. Restaurant food was terrible although they did take it off the bill when we highlighted it didn’t match the description. The staff tried hard and location was good. Gym facilities were good however crowded at times as non hotel guests use the gym so avoid peak times. We were first put in a very small room which could just about walk around the bed.
