“Brilliant”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We stayed the weekend and really loved it. The staff were all extremely friendly polite and attentive, and could not do enough for you! The place was extremely clean and the rooms serviced well. The food was excellent especially the breakfasts. We did not have tome to use the pool or spa facilities but they looked good. The only grouse would be it got a little noisy on the Saturday night with people moving around the corridors late on but you could expect this in a hotel of this size. Overall we very very impressed!

Lovely staff, very comfortable beds, excellent facilities, good age restrictions, fast service; just a very good hotel. There is no air conditioning in the room which was disappointing, especially as the rooms get very hot over night. Another thing is that food is very expensive, so be prepared to wonder off to find other food places.

All in all very good, just let down slightly by those factors.

Stayed for two nights whilst my fiancé did the total warrior challenge. Lovely hotel, our daughter loved the pool facilities. Room was nice and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. My only negative is the food is very expensive breakfast cost us £20 for continental and we each had a bowl of cereals and some toast. Then £30 the second morning for a hot breakfast which is served to you so you can't fill up your plate to get your monies worth. I think this is too much when the room was expensive too. That and £150 for an evening meal in the hotel restaurant it all added up to an expensive weekend! It certainly put me off having any spa treatments whilst we were there which would have been nice.

Stayed at this hotel a few times now and it is consistently good. The facilities on site such as the pool, kids games room, bar and lounge area are all excellent. Rooms are well appointed, spacious and nicely decorated, even the family rooms. The extras for the kids like a special bathrobe with "V I little P" on the back and personalised cookie in your room all add to the lovely feel and welcome for families.

This is a great place and well worth a visit! I've been here for meetings before but this is the first time I've stayed. The rooms are bright, spacious and have everything you need! The staff are lovely - very helpful and nothing is a trouble for them. Free wifi which is always a bonus. Not used the spa but it's clean and inviting - bring your cozzie if you come - I forgot mine - and the menu is fabulous - lots of choice and some good daily deals and local fare
