It's really a 4/5 but I didn't use the health club facilities, which look really good....but I did use the restaurant, which is just OK.
Top deck rooms (£20 supplement) are nice enough. The big picture window would be a bonus in a nice location but, overlooking a car park (or motorway/business park) it's not so appealing. Staff? Good, helpful (if a little bit inclined to play it by the corporate book rather than look after you as an individual). Room, not bad....comfy bed, SKy movies etc, decent bathroom, tea/coffee etc. One gripe....this happens too often. A tea/coffee tray with a Kettle that has no obvious available power supply. You have to hunt around the room for a socket. Really, this stuff is obvious...put the kettle where it can be plugged in!! Design the room around the kettle if you have to.
Anyway, nice cotton linens, a desk. iron etc....good.
Dinner in the restaurant (Vinni Vid Viccis' or whatever) was mediocre at best. We opted for the buffet because we had limited time. "Here's your plate, you only get to go up once so make it count and pile it high" is not what you want to hear. The selection of cold cuts was OK....but the spanish hams were at the bottom end of the supermarket variety and that was the hi-light.
Breakfast was the usual limited affair with sad bacon and poached eggs that were neither soft nor well done.
Management, think about what you might want to eat rather than what is convenient and cheap to serve....this stuff matters. No point having a night between Egyptian cotton sheets if you are only going to remember the dull and soulless breakfast experience.
To be fair, this place is never going to cater for the Special Occasion market...it's more of a business hoitel and it's pretty good as they go. A bit more attention to detail and it could be really good.....even if the location will always hold it back.
