I telephoned to book and requested a room we had twenty five years ago and wanted a bit of nostalgia. The receptionist was very helpful. The room was lovely, comfy bed and two lounge chairs. We've stayed at hotels where they provide only one lounge chair and I am puzzled to think only one person can sit in an armchair. This hotel has it right. The room and bathroom were totally immaculate and the room was large in comparison to other hotels with cosy furnishings, looked as though it was recently refurbished. The lounge was beautifully furnished.
The breakfast was the best selection of fresh food I've seen in a long time. Fresh, bakers, Real bread and lots of cooked choices, pastries, fruit, fish, cheese, charcuterie, traditional English and the selection and quality of the ingredients and cooking was superb. Staff very helpful and friendly. I couldn't fault it. The swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room were a bonus. The changing rooms are fairly basic but that didn't bother me.You need a pound coin for the locker, I had undressed before I discovered this. There was a good information book in the room. It told you about the lockers but not about the coin needed. We loved our stay here and would happily return. We stayed over to get to a funeral early the next day and the hotel was a good antidote to our stress. Great place. less
