Stayed for four nights week commencing Mon 28.7. Positives Good Gym cardio and weights reasonable well maintained equipment. Rooms clean and refreshed daily. Location. Front of house staff helpfully and pleasant. Quality of food good to very good breakfast and evening meal.
Shower pressure low heads need replacing/cleaning.
Room ventilation due to heat having to open window onto rear carpark noise from early rises.
Biggest Gripe was the rear of house kitchen staff who repeatedly on all four mornings failed to produce a breakfast order correct for a four person order. This was not the fault of front of house as we repeated our different orders on each occasion. It appeared someone in the rear just decided what actually should look nice on a plate. It was a challenge and a laugh at times so hey ho. The size of the breakfast portions were somewhat lacking however by the end we tried the method of asking for specific size portions and this worked. The quality of the food was at least very good, the evening meals were also of good quality. Prices may be £1/£2 too much. However overall experience good to very good will return to this hotel again having stopped in nearby Hotels which realistic don't offer the full package this one does.
