I stayed here on the recommendation of a company I was visiting locally; it looks like it hasnt been around for long, and the room wings don't look particularly welcoming. I did arrive in the pouring rain though. Reception is huge, with a sweeping staircase covered in swirly carpet.
My room was huge, with a choice of 3 beds - I went for the middle one. As a non-parent, I am always overwhelmed by parents who let their offspring run up and down corridors like baby elephants And the room had a connecting door which always make me feel uncomfortable.
I did try to use the desk area to do some work, however the chair is so low that you end up with your elbows by your ears. The internet didn't work, either hardwired or wireless, so I had to download my data in the reception area.
The bathroom is a good size, though with dispensers for soap - on top of which I found the previous occupant's disposable razor.
The whole room must have been designed by a man; there are no mirrors suitable for applying makeup, and the hairdryer is wired in to the drawer which is only just close enough to the mirror to be able to see what you're doing. The curtains don't shut enough to block out the floodlights in the carpark, or the almighty thunderstorms we had that night.
I ate in the bar area, which has warnings on the menus - at busy times you have a 2 hour time slot! I imagine it must get busy in the summer, and at the weekends. I only hope they have more staff on, otherwise you'd want that 2 hours to start from the time they take your order. Food was very good, and I think having huge jars of homemade cookies on the counter must constitute as some kind of torture. Can recommend the chocolate chip.
Definitely somewhere I'd come back to, to see what the rest of the hotel is like.
