We stayed at the hotel en route to London and selected it because it was central as we intended walking out to a local town centre restaurant.
From the car park the hotel looked like a tired 1960’s establishment, but surprisingly our room had recently been refurbished and the walk-in shower and modern furnishings and feature lighting was a great bonus. Room had a safe, ironing board, fridge, LCD TV, plenty of wardrobe space etc. Very comfortable and clean, with lots of fresh fluffy towels.
It was a cold evening, so despite being centrally located, having opened the door of the Bistrot Pierre restaurant, we decided to eat there. Fabulous choice and the concept was not what we expected from a traditional hotel restaurant; busy and lively with a modern ambiance and great service from the staff.
The restaurant was quite busy, recognising it was a midweek night, helped I guess by some of the food and wine deals that were on offer. It was clear by the coats on the chairs that not all the diners were guests; a great local eatery.
Breakfast was a similar affair, excellent.
We didn’t explore the leisure facilities at the sister hotel across the road.
In summary, a centrally located hotel with modern rooms, friendly staff and an excellent modern bistro restaurant; a great find. We actually returned back there on our way home.
