On first appearance the hotel looks excellent, there was plenty of staff on at reception and the reception area and bar look good. The breakfast was good, with a buffet style breakfast offering a good selection and plenty of staff to guide you to your table and bring you your choice of tea or coffee quickly. for once having coffee meant i was not at a disadvantage as a pot was brought to the table for me.
Bad points was finding an old coke bottle under our bed, when checking the next morning to ensure we had not left anything behind! There was thick dust behind the old large TV - i wasn't looking but when sat at the chair next to the TV - on looking up towards the door - you couldn't help noticing. My daughters twin room had mould growing up the wall - and a clean space in the middle of it - where a previous visitor (I presume) had cleaned a round spot to show it could be removed by water! She also found a used tissue just under the bed.
No internet access in the bedrooms - I would prefer to pay for usage rather than trudge down to the front reception for access.
The swimming pool was also additional with a £5 charge to join the health club to use it and you would have needed to hire towels from the health club - have never come across this before in an hotel.
