I stayed at this hotel on Friday night and overall, it was a good experience.
We were situated in a room on the first floor, so easy access up the stairs from reception. The lift I believe was a short walk past the lobby bar. The room was fine - clean and tidy, comfortable bed with all the mod-cons. There wasn't an iron in the room, just a trouser press - but no harm.
We went down to the pool not long after checking-in for a quick swim. The lockers in the changing rooms don't have locks on them, not a concern to me - but I do believe the leisure facilities are available for use of the public (they have to be a member though). Sadly, the Jacuzzi isn't powerful at all.
The next morning, we had breakfast which was about £6.50 each. The staff were very friendly but when you first walk in, you are not greeted by anyone or shown to a table, you're pretty much left to your own thing until someone comes over to take your room number and if you wanted tea/coffee. The continental range had some cereal, a couple of pastries, bread and toaster machine, juices and some yogurt drink. From the menu, it looks like they may serve a help-yourself buffet range, but with it being quite quiet, this mustn't have been on offer during our stay. The waitress came over and took our cooked breakfast option, which ranges from the usual English, to Smoked Haddock, Kippers, Poached eggs etc. etc.
Overall, yeah - good stay, decent rooms, good pool area, poor Jacuzzi, decent breakfast.
I would stay here again.
