We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on the 21st July 2016 and we stayed in the July Suite(19). We had had a busy day with meetings and we found the hotel easy to get to and it had ample car parking facilities. The Staff on arrival had been having difficulties with the Room Key technology but they still booked us in very quickly and took us to our room returning a short time later when they had successfully activated our copies of the key card. Very good service we thought not to be kept waiting. The room was very very good indeed, having a large sitting area, large screen TV and upgraded room amenities. They bathroom was truly huge and very well presented. His and hers sinks, large shower and seperate bath.It was very well presented. The WiFi was very good so we were able to finish our work that evening easily. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The bar area in the evening was good for sitting in or out on the patio area and the service was good.
Breakfast in the morning was not too bad, but was a little lacking in some of the areas you would expect, liked not all the hot-trays were out and mushrooms not present or refilled. Also the serve yourself toast machine was of the typical type that actually does not prepare your toast, unless you like it the same colour as you placed it in the machine. They are obvioulsy aware of this issue as they have the notice above the toaster, DONT put your toast through twice.( Unless of course you like the appearance of firemen in uniform due to setting off the smoke detectors.... Mrs E did of course want to do this but was restrained by my good self who needed to get on to another meeting). Overall, it was a good place to stay and very convenient for the town area. less
