and easy to find. So far so good. On arriving at reception I was told that the lifts to that portion of the hotel were out of order and that they would send my luggage up, which they did. Fortunately I had only a small carry on bag.
Not so fortunate a family arriving the following day that had cases and a lot of luggage between them. They had loaded their luggage onto a trolley, but seemed to have been unaware that to reach their room they had to negotiate three fire doors a flight of seven stairs down and five stairs up ( or the reverse depending on your direction). The trolley was useless. I saw them struggling with their luggage and then heard someone saying "Well, I shall never forget the trip to England, that's for sure! Way to get a great reputation!
The rooms themselves are OK. Tea, coffee and toiletries are there but not replenished. OK if you are there for a night but not so good for a longer stay. They only provide a bath mat and a bath sheet, no hand towel.
You can pick up a pool towel if you go down to the leisure centre, but don't count on any serious swimming as the pool is shallow and not really suitable for swimming lengths. This was a big disappointment as I had booked the hotel based on it having of a swimming pool.
I also booked on the basis of it having a restaurant and after one abysmal meal I gave that up too!
