Price was good. Bed was comfy. Restaurant closed so I believe room service should have been offered minus the £4.50 charge. Room was beyond worn ! Room was cold with no air con and only basic heating. Windows and curtains were in need of replacement!
We stayed for three nights whilst visiting family nearby. From the welcome greeting to final check out we had first class treatment . The room was excellent with two double beds , warm and cosy during a cold spell. The breakfast was an excellent selection of good freshly prepared fare.
I so wanted to give this hotel a 4-star rating: efficient and personable welcome and check-in, my Platinum status rewarded by an upgrade and a brand new contemporary bathroom. Yes, the bedroom looked dated, needed more accessible power sockets and the window struggled to keep out the cold and distant road noise, but the small convector heater did a good job of keeping the room snug and I slept well, even if the duvet barely covered the king-sized bed. The fourth star star was lost due to the fact that my restaurant experience was ruined by the noise from the party being hosted in the next-door function room. There is virtually no soundproofing and if the door was left open, which it was often - surely H&S rules would demand the doors self-close (?) - you might as well join in the party. The restaurant staff made no real attempt to keep the door shut and once I even had to ask them to close it. I would have ordered dessert and coffee, had I not just wanted to get back to the peace and quiet of my room. With the Christmas party season about to kick-off, I’d suggest keeping your dinner options open until you arrive and find out whether a party is in full swing.
Only stayed one night, comfy clean room. Buffet breakfast included, be prepared to que for eggs freshly cooked, was very busy, wait to be seated and choose tea or coffee. Juice, cereal and toast with preserves included. Fruit and yogurts. A full English, pick what you want so plenty for every one. A heated smoking area, well stocked bar, perfect. Friendly efficient staff. Would return.
we were lucky enough to be allocated a pristine room on the ground floor - room 10 which appeared to be newly decorated. Very spacious & comfortable beds - there were 2 double beds! Only downside no bath just a shower. Air con was horrendously noisy but we did not need it thank goodness. Breakfast good with attentive staff. The duty manager did not look very professional with long unkempt hair that i think should have been tied up especially when he went into the restaurant. I am not old fashioned far from it but he really did not create a positive image
Sadly, as an established IHG member this hotel is disappointing Whilst the bathrooms may have been refurbished, the room standard is very poor Screwed shut windows Peeling wall paper Noisy A.C Units Service in reception was good I’ve eaten here previously, but not this time and the food was very good All in all, for £145 per night, not great value
Upon arrival at a weekend we were told the restaurant was closed and only room service was available. This was not really a problem but the reason soon became apparent. An event was being held in the restaurant that was very noisy until about midnight. Loud music was played giving the feeling of a hotel in Ibiza! We were then kept awake until 1am as noisy guests returned to their rooms. On the plus side the rooms were good and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. I assume it’s not like this every night or weekend but it did spoil our stay. We also needed to be up early the next day.
Upon arrival I found the car park to be a good size and no problems parking for my course. I found the venue for the course to be a little cramped and the facilities limited. Coffee and tea need to be purchased from the cafe bar and are quite expensive. Most of my group had opted to bring a packed lunch. We were told that the hotel didn't like us to sit and just drink coffee in the bar as they liked to keep the space for people eating - that was an odd request as I can't imagine the staff asking hotel guests to do the same. We were asked to have take away cups yet the price was still over the odds. I wasn't overly impressed but can only comment on the facilities that I used.
I stayed with my wife and 5 year old son this last weekend. We arrived early for a full check in and were told housekeeping were currently cleaning our room so we checked in without seeing our room and went to meet friends. On our return we went to our room only to find the upgrade I requested and paid for had not happened. When I complained I was told it was tough - no explanation was forthcoming. I had no option but to accept it. Then in the morning they ran out of food over breakfast 3 times in the space of 30 minutes while we ate. It would have been cheaper and much less hassle to have stayed in the nearby Premier inn. Never again will we chance this hotel
