Stayed here due to its location being just off the M5. Also wanted to stay somewhere with a pool. Booked a Deluxe room which came with toiletries, slippers, dressing gowns, stocked mini bar, double bed and large sofa bed.
Room was very clean, bathroom was very nice with large deep bath, very clean. Everything worked, bed was very comfy with additional 4 pillows if you needed them.
The health club wasnt anything special, jacuzzi was a bit cold, the pool was chaos as it was kids swimming lessons, while the sauna was lovely and hot.
Had room service in the evening which was very nice and delivered in 30 mins. Waiter forgot an ice bucket and this was delivered within a few minutes. Food is somewhat pricey however as is expected in these places, £18 for a steak, £13 for a burger, cheapest bottle of wine £15. Add £2.50 for room service.
Didnt have breakfast as I was leaving early, but I have to say the hotel was very quiet in the night with no corridor noise. Could not hear the motorway.
Overall a lovely hotel, enjoyed our stay there, though it is on the expensive side for what is, at the end of the day, just a Holiday Inn chain hotel. I would go back there however.
