On arrival we were frustrated to see we had to pay for parking. Checking with the receptionist she said it was a different company and everyone had to pay, the only alternative was the park and ride car park across the road at £2 instead of £3 for 24 hours (it was not clear whether that had to be 24 consecutive hours or 24 in total). Know it is not expensive but it is the principal of not having this clearly noted at the time of booking. We also found out later that in fact not everyone had to pay and it was free for blue disabled badge holders but nothing on the machine told you this. We also learnt later that the camera either isn't working or isn't there any more and in fact no one needed to pay !
The hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms are bright and clean although a little clinical. We found the new bed a bit too firm for our liking and very high up which could make it difficult for some people to get in and out.
It was a hot day and the room windows were closed when we arrived but even after opening them there was no air as we were facing an inside courtyard.
We collected a fan from reception but this was of little help. The corridors were also far too hot.
We tried to have a cooling bath but even the coldest setting produced water that was too warm for our needs. Supplied toiletries were a hand soap dispenser and another over the bath with shower gel/shampoo.
Between 2 people there were 2 tea bags, 2 decaff and 2 reg coffee so if you both drank tea this would only make you one cup each.
The location is good and the service station is handy for the Waitrose shop and some eating places. Park and ride across the road is very useful.
Initially the girl on reception was somewhat brusque but we later spoke to a man who was much more friendly and helpful.
Guess the parking and the overly hot room were our only real complaints taking the price and everything into consideration.
