Stayed one night.
Check-in and check-out was a little slow despite all 3 desks operating. There was plenty of parking. The lobby was very large and nicely decorated - there was a huge (real) Christmas tree near the entrance which was nice.
The room itself comprised of a very comfortable 6-foot bed (it was 2 singles pushed together, although you couldn't really feel it) in a spacious room. There was tea/coffee facilities, iron, hairdryer, safe, toiletries (just one general hair/body wash) and a large flat screen tv. The curtains were black-out type which was ideal for me. The bathroom was very spacious with a lovely walk-in shower.
Although I had requested a quiet room with a countryside view, I ended up in the first room next to the lifts and a view of the hotel lobby (!). However, despite not hearing any noise from the lifts; in the morning the banging of the door outside (in the hallway) was quite loud - what with cleaners and people checking out.
We had a very late breakfast at the bar area of full English and bagel with smoked salmon/scrambled egg. The price was reasonable at £10 and £6 respectively, although the full English did not come with any toast, nor could they offer any as their toaster was now 'out of action' (it was 11:45am). The drinks were a little expensive at £3 each for a latte and cappuccino.
We didn't use the leisure facilities so cannot comment on it.
Overall, a pleasant stay.
