I don't understand these great reviews.
The room was tiny. The walls were thin. I could hear the people in the next room walking about and their TV even though it wasn't turned up too loud. This was not a private lovely hideaway.
The LCD TV was high up on the corner of the wall, so hard to see the picture and didn't even have all the freeview channels.
It was Feb so we were stuck inside as it was raining outside all the time. The pool table was ripped, the pool was half very shallow and half quite deep but it made swimming lengths hard as the shallow was very very shallow. The changing rooms didn't have a shower and you had to walk outside to get from the hotel to the pool (not great when wet from swimming to walk through wind and rain).
The snooker room was freezing (and £5 for just over an hour, a bit much) and was again outside.
The fitness centre was a joke, a few bits of rubbish old light weight equipment. I have a better cross trainer at home.
When you enter the hotel, it smells of a pub.
The people were ok but this is not a great place for a couple
