We stayed for a Saturday night when visiting the local area. The hotel is actually a conference centre, set in some nice grounds about a mile outside of town.
Our room was not in the main building, but in the modern annex behind the swimming pool. Our room was fairly small for a double, and had a chain hotel impersonal feel. But the bed was comfortable and it had everything we needed (tv, kettle, alarm clock, etc.). The bathroom was well equipped, with a bath and fixed overhead shower.
We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening. The breakfast the following morning was a buffet service. The fried breakfast was very good, but some of the other bits were lacking (dry croissants, bitter orange juice).
The facilities here were very good and because it's geared up for business and party bookings were hardly being used. We had the 20 metre pool and sauna to ourselves for an hour on Saturday afternoon. Free Wifi throughout the site worked well. There is a pitch & putt course and a gym, so you should find something to suit you.
The staff all seemed friendly and welcoming, Overall, for a one night leisure break it suited our needs. It's not a romantic or boutique hotel, but the facilities make it worthwhile.
