Booked this place through Groupon and it was not a bad deal. The deal included stay, dinner, breakfast and a bottle of wine(which I'll tell u about)
Firstly the hotel is nice with a touch of character to the building mixed with a few modern additions.
The room is nice, clean and spacious. It has a fridge and tea and coffee facilities.
Tv was great for me as quite a few sports channels but no movies. There is a cd and DVD player if you want to bring your own entertainment.
Bathroom was again nice and clean with a separate bath and shower cubicle. Shower needs a little more power but was ok.
Restaurant was ok and service not bad. Couple of birthdays being celebrated whilst we were there and nice to see the staff made a fuss of it by dimming the lights, bringing in a cake and singing happy birthday.
Used the gym a few times which was of a good standard. Didn't get a chance to use spa.
They have a large golf course which I didn't use as it's not my thing.
My only gripe that if checking out on a Sunday they should have a late one as standard without having to ask.
Also the deal included a bottle of wine which you can only have when you checkout. Makes no sense surely you should be able to have with your evening meals. Is it because the wine in the restaurant are far more expensive and this is where they make their money back?
I would go back
