First impression, carpets at reception pretty grubby and a long queue to check in. We requested a quiet room as we had been warned there are often functions on and didn't want to be disturbed. On arrival in our suitably quiet room found the toilet hadn't been cleaned so had to return to reception to request it to be cleaned. seemed to confuse the receptionist who thought either we had made it dirty ourselves (!) or wanted a room change. Eventually it was agreed that it would be cleaned while we were out and this was done. Used the toilets in the main hotel as not keen to use the bedroom one until it was cleaned. Thought I had wandered into the male toilets by mistake as there was such a strong smell of urine! Apart from that they were clean. In the room we found that our quiet distant location meant that we couldn't pick up the wi-fi signal and there was no air con which made for a hot stuffy room on a warm evening. The lift was the smallest I have seen and would only fit one person with a suitcase or two people with no luggage. No problem for us as we needed the exercise but could be a problem for someone with limited mobility and luggage/children.
On the positive side, bed linen and towels clean and fresh, quiet room as requested, comfortable bed and nice powerful shower. Excellent location for what we wanted and very good value. Would I stay there again? Possibly for the convenience but it could do with some money being spent on it to sort out the carpets and toilets in the public areas. Didnt try the sports area as there was an extra charge and we didn't have much spare time.
