We stayed for 2 nights taking advantage of the hotels summer deal which included an upgraded room and continental breakfast.
We parked in nearby NCP car park which is only a few hundred meters from the hotel.
Our checkin was fine and the staff helpful, although the following morning we had to return to the reception to change of key cards as we had not been given the correct colour, the colour indicating what (if any) breakfast you are entitled to.
The breakfast room is very pleasant and there is lots of choice for the continental breakfast, all of which was fresh, plentiful and well presented.
During our stay we used the pool and gym, and whilst both are small and a little dated, they were sufficient for a quick workout, the pool relaxing and the staff helpful.
The room was large, modern and clean, but missing a bit of character.
The WiFi connection was poor and we were constantly having to reconnect.
Unfortunately our sleep was disturbed throughout both nights by the outside noise, the windows in our room (room 238) would not close firmly and because the windows are many years old they stop very little of the noise from the street below.
This is a point raised in a number of reviews and something the hotel clearly needs to address.
