Check in was a bit slow as I was the only person there, but staff are polite and eager to help. Room is very well equipped although the TV could do with an upgrade. Layout of the hotel is interesting and you have plenty to explore through the bar area, lounge/foyer and dining area.
The spa area is well equipped with great gym facilities and the sauna and steam room are excellent, pool is clean with a small area for children to play safe and room to stretch your arms if you are in need of a good swim. Jacuzzi is spacious but there is limited room to relax on a sun lounger. Showers and changing facilities are good. All staff are very professional and helpful. Evening meal for me was superb as I am a bit fussy and like my steak well done but this came out perfect, but for £27 I would expect that.
Second time I have stayed here and overall, I have to say I am impressed by the professionalism and courtesy shown to all visitors, would I recommend this hotel, for sure, but it is not a cheap weekend away!
