Booked this as a change from usual city centre hotel, but found it was a little too far out (£8 in a taxi from the station) and the leisure park it's on struck me as a soul less place, though if you're bored in the hotel, bowling, laser quest and cinema are all on the complex. Italian restaurant in hotel looked very pricey and the pub didn't appear to be very welcoming, and I found it odd that the hotel doesn't have a standard restaurant. Not everyone feels comfortable being sat in a pub atmosphere. No apparent room service either.
The actual bedroom was of good standard (watch the raised bathroom floor!) but lacks centre light. Tea making tray but no biscuits. Bathroom toiletries are in dispensers screwed to the wall, no shower cap etc.
Offer of a morning newspaper comes with a £1 delivery surcharge .... Can't see how they can remotely justify that?
Have to say based on location and food choices I wouldn't opt to stay here again, though rooms were very comfortable.
