Booked this hotel for a christmas party on one of the party nights. Checked into the twin room which I was sharing with a mate and separated the single beds which were pushed together in a double bed fashion?? Only to find about a years worth of grime, toe nails and hairs all over the manky carpet! Even the chamber maid I had to call in screwed her nose up at the state if it.
We had the party in the private function room where it was a real struggle to get through the isles round the tables as there seemed to be no space to manoeuvre. The food was diabolical. We waited approximately 3 to 4 hours for our meals and dessert was dumped on the table well after the dancing had started. The DJ was a miserable idiot so it went downhill from there.
Very poor standard of service
The kitchen should be ashamed of themselves...the only positive was the gym and its staff however the weights were keft all over the place so could do better.
We will not be returning and urge ithers to steer well clear.

We recently had a Christmas party at this establishment which I can only describe as dreadful. On booking into our room it was filthy and we're had to get the maid back to Hoover. After being seated for diner in a room were the hotel had clearly packed you in like sardines we have waited 3 hours for our meal to be served which was disgraceful and several meal having to be sent back to the kitchen due to being cold and potatoes being hard and over cooked. The venue had door security on the venue who were very over the top and would suit a nightclub door at 3 am on a Saturday night not a posh hotel Christmas party. After the event hotel residents requested to enter the bar for further drinks and we're abruptly told no further drinks would be served due to lack of staff! This is not a cheap event and it would appear this hotel are happy to charge lots of money for these event but provide limited staff to save money giving the customer a dreadful, expensive evening. I would not recommend this hotel or party nights to anyone.

Car park is just not big enough for the hotel, when car park is full, which happens frequently, and you park outside of a bay you get a £100 parking fine and very rude reception staff who say nothing to do with them. Food was awful and very bad service. Will not be going back.

Stayed in an 'Upper Deck' luxury room on the top floor. Room was modern but fairly small. Sadly it was also overlooking the car park and directly over the smoking area in front of the hotel which was incredibly noisy as there was a busy function on.

Lighting in the room was dim which is fine if you have the option to have it brighter if needed (you don't!)

Tea tray looked to be an afterthought on a low awkwardly placed table & there was nowhere to plug the kettle other than directly under bedside light (which probably explains missing bulb). There was no luggage stand or table / chair apart from one by the mirror.

Room was very dusty, rainfall shower head in desperate need of descaling and also not great if you don't want to get your hair wet. Light fitting on ceiling above bed hanging loose. There were black marks on the bedding.

Plus side, nice modern decor, comfortable bed & quality bedding. Fluffy towels & nice toiletries in bathroom.

Had a drink in the bar but really slow & poor service, had to wait 15 mins to get served as the function was just starting and there weren't enough staff on.

Breakfast was ok - buffet style. Got there early as previous experience taught me later at the weekend is a total bun fight especially when there was a function the night before.

Has potential to be great but overpriced at the moment so won't be staying again.

This hotel is conveniently located to an office park. It is a shame I do not want to stay there again. I have never stayed at a hotel without toiletries before. Not even a bar of soap. Truck stop quality soap dispensers at the sink and in the shower. One towel. Just stingy and not a cheap place to warrant the frills free environment. The bed was good and comfy. No minibar. A tea kettle nowhere near an outlet. Just an odd place. No alarm clock and reception missed wake up calls two mornings out of 4. Checkout on a Friday took 45 minutes with one lady processing the many business travelers checking out. Room service is fast and pretty good. The breakfast which is included is very nice and the service at breakfast was good. I thought the lobby was pretty. Gym ultra crowded with local customers. I think this could be a nice place. I guess they are saving money but I think in the wrong places. Toiletries for sale at reception like a Motel 6. Sheets/duvet only changed on the 3rd day. Won't stay there again.

Hotel has very comfortable rooms. Very clean. Staff are not the most efficient. The main fault with this hotel is that every time I have stayed there has been a large function on down stairs. The smoking area is at the front of the hotel which made me feel like I was trying to sleep above a night club. In fairness I was moved the same evening but moving rooms at midnight is not the greatest thing in the world when all you want to do is sleep.
