This was a gorgeous hotel, it really had more character than I was expecting from a chain. Everything was perfect with the rooms, our tv was bust but the moment they heard the staff moved us to a nicer room where it did work and couldn't do enough for us.
Food was excellent, bar staff wonderful, front desk excellent.
There was only one little niggle though, that was that if you are a guest going to the swimming pool/ hot tub, you pretty much have to find your own way in - the staff working in the gym/pool area were exceedingly unhelpful and spent all their time talking to regulars about their training regime and couldn't spare 1 minute to help us find our way around.
Overall though, an excellent stay.
