This hotel is on a retail park but appears to be a hub of activity with a starbucks and restaurant on site.
If I was here for a romantic break id be dissapointed but for families it looks a good choice.
Room was a good size and clean, sky sports didnt work despite being advertised. Free wifi was nice though.
The staff were all very pleasant and polite and helpful when needed.
The rooms arent double glazed so if your room is above the busy bar and there is a wedding on like it was when i was there, then dont expect much sleep. to the receptionsts credit , he did try to quieten them down at 2.15am but obviously he was fighting a losing battle.
The gym is well equipped but appears to have a lot of local members and they were signing in free guests on a promotion so it was more like a leisure centre than a hotel gym and pool.
As a solo traveller just looking to get some sleep i think i may have been better off in another location. If you want to save a bit then just head down to mcdonalds in the nearby shopping centre for your breakfast as 10 quid for a breakfast is obscene (although standard in most hotels). Even the food in starbucks was around a pound more than their inflated london shop prices.
if you have kids and like a bustling hotel full of non guests then its a good choice.
