We stayed here for two nights recently as a short leisure break. The main positives to this hotel are it's friendly staff, great evening meals and the hotel's value for money. On the down side, we had asked for best room available but despite being offered a room beyond the bar (no thanks) we ended up in a room in the leisure complex. The room was adequate for the money although a bit of a tight squeeze and would not win any design awards. The room was clean, albeit with a hole in the duvet cover. It had small windows and so the light in the room wasn't great. There was a strange fan / heater device in the room, which was cheap and portable. I have never seen anything like this in any other hotel before. A hotel room that needs a heater makes you wonder what the central heating is like in winter. The ensuite was OK but there was no toilet brush. The breakfasts were not as good as expected. On the first morning we came down to hardly any bread, baked beans which were tired and limp, poor quality fruit juices and coffee. The bread and beans issues had improved by the second morning. Despite having booked and paid in full a few weeks previously the staff did not have us on the list for the dining room. They found us a table in the bar area as the main restaurant had been hived off for a function. On enquiring at reception, we were not down for the restaurant for the second night either. I asked for a 7.30pm table but was told it could be either 7pm or 8.15pm. We settled for 7pm although it was earlier than we would have liked. In the event the place was not particularly busy and a 7.30pm slot would not have caused them any inconvenience. The spa and pool facilities were included in the price, but our session was suboptimal as there was a large hen party taking up most of the area. Fine in itself, but they left their belongings draped over the loungers when they went to lunch and so we were unable to relax there. The attendant in charge wasn't interested in doing anything about this for us so we slunk off back to our room. We felt a bit like spare parts down in the leisure complex. There were three weddings on at the hotel over that weekend but that didn't impact on us particularly. The hotel itself is mostly semi-modern, built around an old farm house (source: local resident). There are no grounds to speak of, just a little garden area at the front. The hotel is surrounded by roads with views of industrial units out front. All in all, whilst the staff, evening meals and the value were good we are unlikely to return.
