“Great setting and well-manicured grounds. Generously proportioned rooms”
Paid just over £60 via booking.com for a twin room with breakfast for two people staying May 26th.
The hotel is away from the town centre. It is in set in lovely grounds - think pond/lake, ducks, dining room and indoor swimming pool facility overlooking the same. Rather nice if you get seated, as we were when we had breakfast the following morning, near the french windows on a hot day and the staff open them onto the grounds. The staff in the dining room were very friendly, and service was prompt. I noted one customer asking the chef to replace the tray of sausages as 'it is swimming in oil', and they did, without fuss. The quality of the hot breakfast and continental buffet options were just right.
I agree with fellow reviewers about the decor. If you are used to travelodge, or more upmarket city hotels, you will baulk at the presence of a cathode ray tube box set in place of HD flatscreen TV, the thick carpet and the funny smell of 'cleaning products' in the hotel corridors.
Despite the odd cobweb and yellowy stained undersurface of the white loo seat, we found the room and bathroom (proper bath!) to be very generously proportioned, with ample wardrobe space and generous selection of tea and coffee facilities, and overall good value for money. We used the free WiFi in our room and this worked very well. Front of house staff seemed quite relaxed about the 11am checkout time, which was a nice touch, though we left in good time.
I would stay here again and try out the gym facilities next time.
Ask for a room on the upper level facing the gardens.
