Chose this hotel based on price and proximity to The Spa where we had tickets for a show. A booking site placed this as about 0.2 miles from The Spa and most of the distance is vertical so you need reasonable mobility. Staff on reception very friendly and efficient and provided us with a parking disc that allows you to park in the nearby streets. Arrived around 2pm but unable to get our room until around 3pm. Thankfully the disc allowed 3 hours parking taking us up to 5pm on the Saturday when restrictions stopped and did not start again 'til noon on the Sunday so never had to move my car.
We had a ground floor room to the hotel rear that overlooked the valley. Contrary to a another reviewer the rooms are double glazed. The rooms are spacious and very clean with an information pack, hair drier, tv, tea/coffee facilities and some complimentary toiletries. Beds were comfortable although I would have preferred a quilt to sheets/blankets ... minor point. The hotel is in a quiet location although if your neighbours are deaf (the majority of customers are pensioners) then you may find yourself having to listen to loud conversations from early in the morning ... luck of the draw.
Breakfast was served between 8-9am. The menu comprised of starters (fruit juice, yoghurt, cereals, grapefruit, prunes etc) of which you could pick one item followed by a selection of mains. My partner seemed to enjoy the personal approach that everything was served to you but I think for what you pay most other hotels would have placed out the starters allowing you to help yourself to however many you wanted. The dining room was full but service was very efficient. We were supplied with an extra pot of tea on request.
Would be happy to use this hotel again or recommend to others.
