The title and location of the hotel may fool you into thinking you're in for a treat - I felt the need to write this, not to intentionally put people off, but to help you make an informed decision. The room we stayed in was the smallest we've come across, with what I think was a small double bed. The en suite was clean and tidy but had yellowing plastic boards around the bath were you would expect tiles. The pool was so bad I couldn't bring myself to go in. I don't know exactely what it was but instead of tiles it had a bagging rubber sheet clipped from the walls of the pool to the bottom. It was also stained on the plastic steps into the water. The steam room and sauna were Ok - they did the job. The changing rooms were worse than you would find in a leisure centre. The photograph of the front of the hotel is about the only attractive part of the building, walk around the side and you'll find what looks like a 70's-80's extension with all expense spared. The breakfast was fine and the staff were helpful. If you're simply looking for somewhere to rest your head, it's probably Ok (but I suspect you'd be better staying in a B&B). Considering we have stayed in stunning hotels for similar cost, we certainly won't be going back unless there is significant refurbishments. A genuine disappointment because it could be a fabulous hotel.
