This is a well-renowned hotel, which lived up to its reputation. The outstanding characteristic was the quality of the food at dinner. A new chef joined from another local hotel recently, and he and his team stun with their food. The hotel changed hands recently and some refurbishment is underway. Our executive room was well-furnished with as comfortable a bed as one might find anywhere. A couple of small points - the tv was fastened to the wall to the side of the bed resulting in strained necks after watching it for a while. Also, there was no extractor fan in the bathroom so a shower steamed everywhere very quickly even with the window open as far as it would go (not very far). A serious issue was that we returned to the room one day to find the cleaner had left a key in our door on the outside - anyone could have entered and helped themselves. Also, the next day, the cleaner emptied the waste bin and left the plastic bag of rubbish on the dressing table; not clever. The gym is small and very tired, the changing rooms for the leisure centre were old and tatty, but a notice indicated they were to be attended to. The jacuzzi was on its last legs. Some of the carpeting in the hotel needs to be replaced. However, I guess the refurbishment programme will address these.
