We stayed here as a family in 2 apartments in the Sports Center child-minding while our daughter and partner were wedding guests in a nearby town. Both apartments were very spacious and clean although some of the furnishings in the living areas were a little tired and needed an uplift. It's quite expensive at £175 and £225 for each apartment. The beds were comfortable and the loos and bathrooms clean - but our shower was poor in comparison to the other apartment with stained grouting. There is free wifi but 'no service' for mobiles in the sports center. I had to go into the car park to get a signal.
We were informed 2 days after booking there was going to be a wedding in the main hotel while we were staying there. This meant the hotel was out of bounds for the duration of our stay. And we would have to use the bistro in the sports center which sells a range of light dishes but closes at 5.30. There was no reduction in the booking fee. As we were child-minding this meant a bit of improvising for our evening meal using the cooking facilities in the apartment. Breakfast is not served in the sports center so we had to wait until 10.30 for brunch the following morning in the bistro (included in the price) although quite tasty it seemed a long wait..
The staff we met were polite. From about 9.00 a.m. Sunday morning we could hear the thump, thump of people exercising on the running machines in the adjacent sports hall. I feel that this venue is designed for weddings and those who want sporting activities as there is plenty going on. We are probably not the target market for this establishment.
