As hotels go, this isn't too bad. I wouldn't want to be staying here more than a couple of nights however.
Arrived at about 5pm on a Sunday evening, car park was empty
We started off in room 240 (quite a small room, with a small double bed, overlooking part of the carpark) where, after we had unpacked everything, we found that the electrics kept tripping.
A quick visit to reception had us changed to a new room (204, larger room, larger bed, over looking the fields) within minutes. Great service.
After moving, and re unpacking, we headed to the bar. Very clean modern lounge area with a good selection of alcohol and soft drinks, and quick service was given.
Food came out quick enough, and the portions were amazing, so big infact, even I struggled! Well worth the prices. Don't order a starter if your not that hungry!
One thing we will say about the hotel as a whole is FIRMNESS. The sofas and seats in the lounge, the beds in the rooms....
Retiring to the room, we couldn't sleep.
As many others have said, the radiator is either on or off, no setting the temperature properly, even with the thermostats that are attached.
The walls are thin, and door banging didn't help. but aren't most hotel/motels the same?
The TV(s) have HDMI input, so was able to attach my tablet to watch Netflix through the free WiFi. However, download speeds aren't great, or something was throttling the speed as our films kept stopping after 20 minutes.
If you just want to watch TV, you may have some difficulty, as some of the channels (mainly HD) aren't 100%. Possibly due to everything coming through a network cable that's possibly not connected to a decent speed hub, so data degradation was happening (Homes Under the Hammer this morning just wasnt the same when ghosting and buffering... lol)
The beds are small. If you are over 5'7", you will be dangling your feet, unless your sitting up. The pillows are so thin, I had to make origami to get some height.
In the morning we found the safe wasn't working. A call to reception had it sorted within minutes.
We had ordered breakfast in bed, and it came exactly at the time specified. Word of advice, order for 1 if you are having it. The portions were enough for 2.
Bathroom, dated. Still has the old attachments for previous soap systems, and a bit of mould around the tiles.
Shower was decent enough.
Decor of the room was modern enough, convenient, and plenty of storage space, but bring some hangers if you have more than 8 items that require them.
Overall, it's modern enough, but the usual hotel niggles are present, especially the bathroom. They need updating.
Service was excellent, with friendly members of staff. less
