Stayed August 2014 with family - taking 3 rooms.
Overall - stay was good and I would return to this hotel to explore the Cotswolds and the Water Park.
Positives are: Room spacious enough, clean, had a view of the lake, good cleaning service, staff helpful & polite, breakfast was good but limited range of cold options, bar service good, pool ok (bit small).
Negatives are: feels a bit corporate, no air-con in the rooms (why for such a newish built hotel?), no fridge in the room (again - why?), windows are not easy to open in the room (had to stand on a chair) which given the lack of air-con is strange. Rooms on the ground floor open to a walkway which is open to everyone (therefore have to close curtains / nets), layoutot of breakfast room is odd.
Perhaps being a bit picky above but it is frustrating when you stay in a modern hotel and they do not have air-con or a fridge in the rooms. The layout of the breakfast room is odd in that there is a 30m gap between the cold & hot selection - both of which are small and create bottle necks.
Steam and Sauna rooms are good but the pool is a bit small for a large hotel. That said, the staff did enforce the "no kids in the pool after 6pm" rule which was pleasing.
We would stay here again as it is a good hotel with good staff in an excellent location to explore the Cotswolds and the Water Park. Good value for money overall but some odd issues for such a modern hotel.
