Visited hotel over bank holiday weeked as a base for visiting family in the area. Booked via hotel direct with a dinning package, which allows for room, breakfast and dinner in the hotel.
Hotel is easy to find about 5 mins from the M4 and didnt seem to suffer from road noise. Reception is very nice and staff very all very friendly. Despite pre-ordering a cot, and being assured at reception that it was in our room, it wasnt. Howvever, this was quickly remedied.
We ate in the cafe bar rather than the main restaurant both nights and the food was excellent, there was quite a wait on the sunday night. Menu ranges from sandwiches to steaks, pizzas. There is also a specific childrens menu and they seemed happy to amend food as requested.
facilities are excellent, there is a well stocked gym with a pool, sauna and steam room. the only slightly strange aspecct is the cafe windows overlook the pool, great for non-swimming family members to watch you i guess.
Room was well-apportioned and in good state of repair.
My only quibble, and i'm assuming that this is marriott policy as this happens every time i go away with them. Even though they know i am booked on the dinning package, the first bill you get adds the cost of the food to the accomodation cost. Adding another £60 odd pounds to the bill. They are happy to amend at reception when queried which again makes me wonder if they do it all the time.
Overall, the dinning package is good value for money compared to the price of a travelodge for the night in a supreior hotel
