We had a deal booking for our wedding anniversary. Saturday night dinner, bed and breakfast and a free bottle of wine. We were concerned about the negative comments raised on this site, but we need not have been. Reception at the executive centre was fast and efficient, the receptionist being cheerful and helpful. This is a large hotel set up for corporate training, events and weddings. Our room was in the Wellington Lodge and it was lovely. It was clean, comfortable and reasonably spacious. The only negative was the kettle didn't work, which we did not find out until the morning when we wanted our morning cuppa. Too late to get it fixed. This block is about a 10 minute walk from the executive centre where the swimming pool and restaurant are which was ok as we could drive there if necessary.
Pool was ok, but very full and partially roped off for a private swimming lesson. Did manage a swim until a family decided to throw a rugby ball from one end to the other. Someone should have stopped that. Jacuzzi a bit small but nice, sauna ok but could not find the steam room. Changing rooms had no lockers so leave your valuables in the room.
Coffee pods everywhere which have nice coffee out of a machine as well as tea and milk, all complementary.
Our evening meal was in the Steam, Bake and Grill which was very nice. It is buffet style and was delicious with plenty of it. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar was lively in the evening and it opened onto a patio with plenty of seating. Breakfast again buffet style and plenty of it. No excuse for going hungry. All in all a very nice weekend.
