We were in the far block of rooms so OK there was some walking to do (under cover but draughty) to get to reception, bar and restaurant but no great hardship- no need to put a coat on- girls take your pashmina.
There are a lot of people (mostly girls) in white robes and slippers walking about (plus some in the bar). Hotel obviously very popular for girlie spa treatments.
Bed, Bedroom, Bath, and bathroom all a decent size. FOC room safe and fridge in room. Windows did open but despite that I thought our room had a bit of stale room odour. Only other improvements would be free WiFi in the room and better bedside light.
With 175 rooms there are a lot of mouths to feed but the service was quick both for breakfast and dinner (linen napkins in the evening) but choose your feeding time carefully. Breakfast scored 9 out of 10 as did our evening meal. Good.
Hotel very helpful photocopying various walks for us. (see the Green Desk on the landing). Location quiet especially in the far ‘new’ block.
We got a good internet deal early March 2012 and on that basis Recommended.
