Myself, my friend and my son stayed for the opening match of the rugby season. My friend needed to bring the car for work the £35 on site parking was a big plus for this hotel. In fact the parking was right outside and would be perfect if you wanted to do a picnic with friends before a game.
We were offered an upgrade to a suite with pitch view for £200 when we checked in which the receptionist said was down from £500 normally. We declined and were put in room 417 which had two very fluffy double beds. The bathroom was clean although looked a tad small. The room was large and also looked clean although we did find an old m&m under the desk. The room has all the usual stuff plus a fridge (whew, no minibar ) which was handy as we brought our own bubbly.
Breakfast was an excellent choice of buffet hot and cold foods,pasteries, fruit etc etc..
the only disappointment with the hotel was the relentless money grabbing. They insisted that our room only included two breakfasts and wouldn't accept that we had paid for breakfast for my son. This despite the fact that he is only seven and wouldn't be eating a massive full English or anything. The staff were much better when we showed them a print out of the booking - do print one out just in case. We had had room service for supper which looked good value. However the tray charge and a tip (we hadn't realsied there was one) made a £13 burger poor value. My salmon sandwich was lovely at £6 although I had ordered a ham and cheese one. Luckily I had been deciding between the two so top marks for anticipating my indecision!
Other good bits were seeing the players eat lunch in the hotel and drinking in the bar afterwards. Don't know about standing up for the Sarries ,I almost passed out!
All in all a great if slightly pricey stay that really makes a rugby weekend.
