I thought this was a mid-range business hotel. I was disappointed with several apsects of the accomodation. I would have expected more for the price, and wished I'd stayed somewhere else. The room provided a desk / dressing table, with a chair that was so low, I could not type on my laptop. In spite of several lamps and overhead lights, all switched on, the illumination in the room was not adequate for a good working environment. The bed is fitted with a memory foam mattress, so a restless night of sweating did not put me in a good frame of mind for a day's work.
Dinner the first night, in the grill, was not good value for money. Service was poor, food was slow, prices were high for what it was. The second night, in the pub, was cheaper and better, with good friendly service.
At breakfast on the first morning I was not shown where the cooked buffet was (the cold buffet is in a more obvious place), and 'service' was grudging.
The pool facility is good. The reception staff friendly and helpful, but i won't go back any time soon, or probably to any other hotel in the chain.
