We did have a pleasant stay at this hotel, but did experience a few problems.
I booked the hotel (directly) and was told that only one executive room was available for the night I wanted - in the new part of the hotel with canal veiws. We were slightly disappointed when we arrived to be given a standard room in the old part of the hotel, but in fairness this room was still clean and comfortable and we were only charged standard room rates. We had been in our room for about 30 minutes when a kettle arrived, the milk for the tea never did turn up and there was only one set of towels.
We had a meal in the hotel restaurant on Saturday evening, which was delicious... and the breakfast was excellent - definitely worth waiting for everything to be freshly cooked to order! Both the bar and restaurant staff couldn't be faulted for their friendliness & helpfulness.
Our biggest disappointment, was that our motorcycles tank bags were stolen from the hotel car park, despite the CCTV. The reception staff called the police, who arrived within the hour. I know this isn't the fault of the hotel, but it did take the shine off our stay.
