Reviewed 1 April 2012

Stayed Here for one night. Thank goodness it was not a longer stay.
Negatives:
Bar and lobby area was dirty. Crisps, old newspapers and food remains left all over the place. Nowhere quiet to sit whilst waiting for a room to be prepared. I arrived at 13:15 had to wait 45 mins for a room.
View from room on 1st floor out over flat roof. Bare wires hanging from ceiling in bathroom
But worst of all I could here every single word, giggle,scream, drunken babble from sourounding rooms. Got back to the hotel at midnight after a dinner with family. Noise continued to gone 3am!
Positives
Staff were polite and friendly.

Stayed: March 2012

Nice hotel, very cool room, comfy bed, very nice facilities, very POOR soundproofing!! My room was located above the entertainment hall, but it was as loud as if I was in it!! It appears that all the money has been spent on fittings, but basics like soundproofing have been over looked! Very disappointed as all else was good, even the food was ok, but as I was travelling for business and had an early start then it really wasn't the place for me, that coupled with a packed car park will prevent me from returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room well away from the entertainment!!!

First impressions were very good. Apart from the swimming pool smell in the lobby, everything seemed clean and tidy, and there was a good 'vibe' about the place. The staff were friendly, and helpful. My wife asked to book a manicure and pedicure, and managed to get in quite quickly. All seemed OK.
Then we went to our room. There was dust on every hanger, on the mouldings on the furniture, and the bathroom was frankly appalling. There was A LOT of hair in the plug hole, and the mastic was very mouldy in places, and was several layers thick (and untidily done). The rubber on the shower screen looked as if it had never been cleaned, and there was staining in the toilet, and dead insects laying in the light box above the sink area.
The walls are paper thin. We could clearly hear the couple in the room next door, but the absolute pinnacle of our stay was the 'tribute' night the hotel puts on every Friday. Loud, thumping music until 1 a.m., and lots of drunk people about. We phoned down twice to complain, and finally got moved to another room away from the music, but next to the boiler room. This fired up every 20 mins. or so, and kept us awake all night, so probably made things worse.
The slight saving grace for the hotel, is that the breakfast wasn't too bad (although steep at nearly £10), The bar area is nice (but pricey), and they managed to make my friend's wedding reception there a massive success.
I would never go back though.

Room Tip: There didn't seem to be any.

Helpful staff, clean modern rooms and good on-site facilities. A reliable village quality hotel. Despite being located next to a bussy roundabout, noise is not an issue even overlooking the road.

Stayed here a couple of times on overnight business trips. Always seems to be plenty of (inclusive) parking. The rooms are standard and modern with wifi access and a comfortable bed for a good nights sleep. Bathrooms could do with updating. Service in the bar is friendly, yet unremarkable elsewhere. I would stay again, as convenient for my needs.

OK, so the rooms are ok, walls a bit thin though, and the gym/pool is fantastic but...

Restaurant was the most overpriced I think I've been in ever. Food was frankly rubbish. £13 for an average burger, ordinary fries and an old bland salad. £21 for a very average steak with identical trimmings to the burger.

Breakfast just as bad.

The bar was busy - very expensive though.

Staff seemed to be doing their best but it wasn't very good. Planning by them for two small conferences happening at the same time was woeful.

Room Tip: south side quieter - end of corridor gives less chance of having bad snorers on each side. (walls th...

I am writing this while in my room so its freash in my mind! On entering the hotel the first thing that hits you tis the overwelming smell of "Swimming Pool" smell . the reception area was packed and as there is a Costa Coffee in reception lots of Mums with kids running round is another thing you notice .

Reception was helpful and said it was always packed .My room is awful ,shabby not that clean bathroom that needs pulling out and re doing dust all over the place .The hall ways need a good hoover as well .

Dinner was ok but very much ready prepared food that they want you to get in and out as quickly as possible so they could get more in.

The only thing going for it is its near the M4 nothing else and I wont be back!

Room Tip: Dont stay!
