Advertised as a four star hotel, I wouldn't say it lives up to the standards of most of the four star places I have stayed at but it is ok. The rooms are spacious and clean with all the basics. It is more premier inn than four star luxury. The bed was not comfortable as advertised. The breakfast was disappointing. There was a lack of staff and food! Service was slow. I could have set the table for eight quicker myself. We had to ask for the bacon and eggs to be replenished on both days. There was never a complete set of hot food to choose from and no black pudding at all. There was fried bread one day but not the next. There was always something missing from the selection, and this was when the restaurant was fairly empty. There were no fresh pastries left. They had all gone and not replaced. We had to ask for extra toast. All a bit slack and basic. You would be better saving your money and driving down the road to the Toby Inn for breakfast. There would be more choice and better service. The only good thing about the restaurant was the view over the stadium. Be warned, the excited crowd noise does enter the hotel but I liked that. The attached leisure complex was ok. The pool was a comfortable temperature. Four people can use the spa and there is a steam room and sauna. I felt the changing rooms were looking a bit tired and hardly any of the lockers worked. It felt a bit unclean. The gym was excellent. Well equipped. I also visited Lilly's beauty. This was very good and reasonably priced for a hotel. All in all, an ok stay, great location for IronBridge but some improvements could be made to get that four star feel.
