We stayed for a 4 day weekend break and had a lovely time. Rooms were small (but we were in singles and it looked like the doubles were of a decent size when we glimpsed them) and comfortable but very very hot though, some of our party were given a fan but not others. Bathroom was a very good size and very clean. The food was very tasty and plenty of choice; the only criticism was that we were not keen on sharing a table with other people in the restuarant which at other hotels we have not done. Service was excellent and waiters and waitresses deserve a pat on the back!! Entertainment was above the normal standard but again the entertainment lounge was too hot - the Prince Regent ballroom was cooler. Our driver was pleasant and helpful and would return but would like to stay in the sister hotel The Prince Regent as it seemed a lot cooler overall and the decor was better although we were able to use the facilities and there was a walk way between both hotels which is good. There are loads of comfortable lounge and sitting areas. A very pleasant stay and would return.
