We were part of a big party who stayed for 3 nights. The hotel appears to have been freshly decorated, the staff were friendly and the hotel had a 'warm' friendly atmosphere. The rooms were nicely appointed and I would think that each room is different given the character of the hotel. Please be warned that the only form of air conditioning in the rooms are windows and a fan (stored in the wardrobe). I had the windows open all day and night for my entire duration of stay, plenty of fresh air but the room was still very much on the warm side. I would recommend this hotel, perhaps more as a non-summer visit though!!
Parking is good but watch out for the trees along the back of the hotel car park, you will find that your car will be covered in sticky sap in the morning. The following nights I parked more central and the car was fine.
Marco's the restaurant is trying to be something it isn't I'm afraid. It has only recently been opened so it may be down to teething problems, but service is very very slow (took an hour for our first course to arrive) and even then the meatballs we ordered were raw!! They were excellent at sorting it out and gave us the meal free along with a drink. The restaurant isn't cheap and I would highly recommend the Indian restaurant in Kegworth, food is served loads quicker and it is much better value. less
