On arrival, you're greeted with a bright and airy reception with a Starbucks for those coffee lovers.
Check-in: Receptionist extremely pleasant however for a Friday evening with a big event happening, one person on the desk is not enough to deal with everything. Room: Clean, tidy but basic. Had more or less everything you'd require. Bed was extremely comfortable. The bed was on wheels so had a tendency to move on its own which can sometimes be a little disconcerting! The shower was very powerful and very hot which was lovely. TV: basic channels, the Village channel could do with upgrade as regards picture quality, it would be nice for the channels to match up with the numbers in the room TV guide. Function room: the bar crowded very quickly, forming a bottleneck at the entrance due to too much clutter (tables and chairs) heaven knows what would have happened had there been a fire!
Breakfast: was a good selection of cereals, fruits with the obligatory cooked breakfast with toast, etc. All very tasty. It was a very busy Saturday morning and I think the staff may have struggled to keep up with the large numbers of people and food availability. Good choice of tables however, for two persons or larger groups. Waiting staff very pleasant.
Can't comment on the spa facilities as I didn't use them but I did observe that they were very popular, judging by the amount of people going in and coming out.
The hotel could do with some better signage from the motorway and the road outside. It would be very easy to drive straight past the entrance, as I did!
Overall, I would recommend this hotel.
