we found this hotel by complete accident about 18 months ago and have returned every couple of months since. we stay in a suite (airfield side of the hotel is nice but once you have seen it once staying the other side is fine!), they are huge with 2 tvs, a king size bed, amazing shower with everything to the highest standard. we have stayed in a studio room a couple of times and they are equally as lovely- just smaller. cocktail bar is lovely, table service which is good on a busy saturday as the bar, and restaurant, is open to non hotel guests. in the summer there is often a wedding on the weekend (top floor of hotel) and if staying in a suite you may hear the reception but faintly and its never too late. food is fantastic in the restaurant and reasonably priced. havent yet tried the newer day bar for lunch though but always smells fantastic. breakfast used to be ordered off the menu but is now buffet. a couple of times (usually when a large wedding party has stayed) we had to wait for trays to be refilled or food needed topping up and we had the scraps- however we now get roomservice (leave order and time slot on door handle the night before) and you get everything from porridge and eggs royale to a full engish. there is a small tray charge of a few quid but we prefer that on a sunday morning!
we have now been so many times the duty manager arranges our suites for us and we often get a bottle of wine chilling when we arrive and strawberries covered in chocolate.
an extremely modern, plush hotel. absolutely no faults here- just covering all bases for purpose of review!
