A new branch of PI and a very high standard. Our check in was swift and faultless. It operates on a key card system for room entry, then you leave the card in the wall to activate lights. The cleanest hotel I think I have ever stayed in, probably as it's brand new. A superb shower with a power shower and a huge rain shower if you prefer. Beautifully decorated in a boutique hotel type way. We had a room on the ground floor which I don't really like but it was ok. The hotel sits next to a new housing estate and close to a busy road but you couldn't hear any noise. The room itself was beautiful, lovely lighting, huge TV. Kettle etc. Bed was firm, too firm for my taste so be warned. There is a choice of firm or softer pillows but they make no allowance for the customer who may prefer a softer mattress, after all you are really paying for the bed, the rest is just dressing.
The breakfast was at the restaurant opposite. It was suppose to be a buffet but you had to order the hot food. Timing was an issue as you didn't know what to do first. Also if the food isn't on display people tend not to ask for it. I imagine it saves money. Saying that when it did arrive it was piping hot and well cooked. Usually at PIs the hot food is supplied on hot plates and you only have to order specific items, so not really sure why this one is different.
All in all a pretty good stay and would stay again. I hope they manage to keep up the levels of cleanliness as it really was very impressive.
