The layout of this hotel is somewhat strange with some bedrooms being a fair walk from the reception area and other communal rooms. Decor is drab, especially in the bedroom and bathroom. The shower facility is unusual and without instructions it was difficult to know just how to operate the shower without also running the bath taps! Corridors are odd with vending machines selling food and drink items at various points.
On arrival the lunch was awful and the dining area completely unatmospheric. Not being able to find a decent salad bar offering a salad for main course I chose 1 of the 3 hot meals, 'tuna bake', which was served from a school like hatchery. I thought this would be a tuna and pasta dish but infact it turned out to be a very plain tasting grilled tuna steak served with very liittle else. The tuna was very tough and I noticed I was amongst many who left much of it.
In the evening we had a function in a suite (the golf club) away from the main building. Very poor directions were offered by staff and there were no signs outside so a large number of the party were forced to walk around the large car park until someone stumbled across the venue!
Atleast the location of the hotel is handy being near the M1 and central to much of England.
