“The worst beds ever!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2005

We went for one night and are we glad it was only the one!!
Good points: Excellent leisure - warm pool, clean, hot tub was excellent. Steam/Sauna very good. Unfortuantley these were the only good things. Apart from Hanah the Duty Manager at that time she was very helpful.

Things to do: Nice countryside - although you have to travel 5 minutes by car to get to it as this hotel is on the main road and backs on to an industrial park - not the best view! Also a Tesco around teh corner and 5 minutes drive to the town centre.

Bad points: Breakfast - terrible. I used to think when i read reviews how can breakfast be bad? Well, cheap bacon with white fatty skin coming of - this is a sign that the bacon has been watered down so its the water escaping from it. So the bacon was undercooked, rubbery and cheap tasting. Hash Browns soaked in oil/fat that were uneatable. Beans - i must of found 10 beans in my entire portion!! The rest was just about eatable. Nevertheless we only ate a little.

Rooms - ok, reasonable size. We had the executive room and if that was the exec room then i hate to think what the standard rooms were like!! We had a 4ft 6in standard double and we must of woken up atleast 20 times throughout the night - the bed was way too hard and the duvet was a simple white sheet with a very basic annoying cover - no comfort at all.
Do yourself a favour - dont come here as i had a bad back and instead of having a break i went home exhausted from lack of sleep.

3 star, shoud be 2 star.

For a four star hotel it's got a very high opinion of itself!! The room smelt extremely musty and the double bed could have easily been mistaken for a single. The bathroom was even worse than the living area - it came equipped with a washing line that pulled out across the bath, a toilet that required pumping to make it flush, and three bright yellow rubber ducks on the edge of the bath (???) of which only one had one eye left!!! On the plus side the view was ok - rabbits and a small stream. Finally the waiting staff were in need of some intense training. Overall a place to avoid like the plague.
