Stayed here in early Jan 2013 for one night for business. First the good news. Great location across the road from the train station. The public spaces are attractive, bright and clean. There are also plenty of helpful and attentive staff available if needed. The room was clean and well equipped and the furniture and accessories all seemed up to date and in good order. The bathroom was spotless and reasonably spacious. I didn't use the wifi (charge applies), but colleagues informed me it was very poor (each device needing its own password) and very slow. Breakfast was a standard buffet affair with lots of attentive staff, however the choice and quality was a little disappointing. So far no problem giving the hotel 4/5. However the most disappointing experience in the hotel was the swimming pool. I was greeted in the leisure suite by three bored looking young staff, on entering the changing rooms the facilities looked tired and not very clean. The pool itself is fine, but the sauna was boarded up (poor quality disintegrating MDF with a thin coating of paint), the steam room had a large number of tiles missing, making it impossible to clean. So overall the leisure area needs a make over and deep clean. But I was finally put off completely on seeing a pair of used underwear hanging from the shower rail in the changing area. I couldn't help thinking the three bored staff should have been doing something other that sitting down.
I will no doubt return as I did not make the booking myself, but I would think twice about returning if making the choice myself.
