We had a very relaxing 3 day break at the beginning of February. The staff were all very friendly and keen to please and all spoke very good English, althought often not their first lanugage. The food in the dining room was of a good standard (my only complaint is they ran out of crossiants at breakfast on Saturday morning). It was a cold weekend -2 degrees on arrival with snow overnight but the hotel was toasty warm. The bedroom was large with smart decor and fairly new (excellent powerful shower - room 129). The mattress looked brand new and was comfortable. There was refurbishment ongoing - but not during the weekend and very low key on the Monday.
The gym was well equipped and the steam room and sauna well kept.
We almost cancelled our reservation at this hotel because of the negative reviews on trip advisor but i'm glad we did not. How many people with negative comments actually took up their complaints with the hotel durring their stay?? (and yes I did express my dissappointment about the lack of crossiants).
