We stayed at this hotel over Christmas 2011 - the second time we've had a short break with this as our base. The hotel is fairly new so still fresh, clean and contemporary which we prefer. We opted for a double superior bedroom so it had a kingsize bed which was very comfortable. There was sufficient space and the bathroom was also nicely furnished with a lovely big shower head. One strange thing was that there was a kind of 'shutter' on the wall of the bathroom between that and the bedroom so when the bathroom light was on it shone through - not great in the middle of the night. On the other hand we found the main room to be a bit dark - it was difficult to see clearly in the wardrobe for instance. However, that's the only real problem with the room.
It's worth saying that this hotel organises lots of events and we have found it to be a bit noisy so I'd recommend packing ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful although can at times be a little unprofessional - ie lady on reception discussing over the telephone a fight that had broken out the night before.
There are good facilities: bar, restaurant, fitness facilities, Starbucks. Unfortunately breakfast can get very busy and the staff, whilst working really hard, are not always organised so we did have to wait quite a while and ask three times for our hot drinks - but I put that mainly down to the fact that it was Christmas so very busy.
I'd definitely stay here again when visiting our family. We've tried a few different hotels in the area and this comes out top every time.
