We came here for our first wedding anniversary for just a short break. I got a good deal on wowcher.
When I rang the hotel to make the reservation they asked fir the wowcher code which I provided. When we arrived to check in they asked fir the dude again. I didn't have it as I thought as I'd sir easy given it plus received confirmation in an email from the hotel of my reservation stating wowcher offer that I wouldn't need it. The young girl at reception really didn't know how to deal with a slightly difficult situation and proceeded to go on about it being policy that they needed the wowcher code otherwise they will need to take alternative payment! Not something when you want to hear when checking in for a special occasion which you had already paid for! She said she would have to ring wowcher! I thought what a performance and was trying to log into my wowcher account from my phone to see if it had a record of my code. I was clearly not happy so the manager came over and handled the situation much better by explaining usual requirements but that if I showed ID which I had plenty of then it would be fine. We were then shown to our room which was a nice touch and the room was gorgeous. Very well decorated and furnished. Very pleasant. Good quality towels and toiletries. The food in the restaurant was all very good and of good quality it just lacked a little in flavour. The dishes were quite bland. The hotel is in quite an odd location with uni buildings surrounding it. I do think this spoils the hotel and it's grounds. All in all a pleasant stay after the disastrous check in!
