Booked on line for a Saturday night on 1st Feb 2014. Booked the hotel at 1600hrs, arrived around 1900hrs. Receptionist was very friendly and knew we were coming. She immediately upgraded us to an executive room.
On entering the room it was lovely and warm. The bed was huge, loads of pillows and really comfortable. Bathroom was clean and quite modern with toiletries in the corner on a piece of slate which was a nice touch. Room had a small LCD TV with plenty of freeview channels. Room also had a balcony which was great. Some great views over towards Wales. The room was spacious and had large wardrobes, trouser press and hair dryer.
A few points which I thought an executive room should have :-
1. No fridge
2. No bottled water
3. No menu for room service
However I can't complain too much as it was a free upgrade after all.
We stayed because we were going to the Ford Club which was right next door. On return to the hotel the nightwatchman let us in and was really friendly asking did we want a drink at the bar. We declined and went to our room. Sleep was great, really comfy bed. Room was a bit hot during the night but once I had turned down the thermostat became more comfortable.
On checkout the receptionist again was very friendly and thanked us for booking to stay there.
I cannot comment on breakfast as we did not wake up in time. The checkout time was great on a weekend, I think it was 12 noon.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay and the free upgrade really made it special. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone.
