Great greeting at reception. the reception area is bright and airy with a very good bar. The hotel is in a small town and has 2 connected parts. There is reasonable free parking. We booked at a few hours notice and got one of the last rooms. The room was very clean and well equipped with a nice shower/bath, tea/coffee facilities. However the room was much smaller than expected. This may be due to it being in the older part of the hotel. Also there were other bedroom doors close by and during the night there seemed to be a number of late-night revellers who insisted in banging their doors. Perhaps there are more modern rooms in the newer section.
We did not have dinner in the hotel but the breakfast was served in the restaurant and provided a reasonable choice in a pleasant environment.
The hotel has a spa on the ground floor, the use of which is not complimentary but can be used for a reduced fee. There is no swimming pool but the jacuzzi and steam/shower facilities were very good and the staff were excellent and there were some excellent weekend offers. I have given the 4 rating on the basis that there might be bigger rooms - otherwise a 3.
