Stayed here for a meeting and didn't really know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. Parking was easy, for a start. Check in was swift, efficient and friendly (always reassuring). My room was of a good size with a big bed, well thought out lighting (to read in bed by or to work at the desk) and excellent curtains for a black-out. The bathroom had plenty of towels with an eco-use policy as well as toiletries (rare, I think, in hotels of this class) and a bathtub as well as a shower! I rarely go to hotels on my own these days and a bath feels like a real treat.
Had a drink in the bar - friendly barman - and dinner at the hotel (which was good with swift and helpful service). Thought it might not be as there was a wedding going on at the same time but it was fine. I always have earplugs in so can't comment on the noise level but the room was dark and I slept like a baby. The pillows seemed to suit me and there were lots of them!. Shower was good in the morning (despite, presumably, lots of people having showers at the same time) and a great deal of choice for breakfast. I'm always nervous with breakfast buffets that the quality will be poor and things will be cold but no worries here. With apologies to vegetarians, the sausages deserve particular praise!
I noticed you could use the facilities at Burleigh Court for £10, which might be good if you're staying for any time. There was also a 'spa menu' in the room in case you wanted to go over there.
I really liked it and would certainly go back. I commend them on their questionnaire sent after the break to my email address, encouraging me to think how they could improve or even asking if I wanted a manager to ring me to discuss any aspect of my stay! How many hotels could do with that!
