We booked last minute, through booking.com for my husbands birthday.
On arrival, we were a bit disappointed with the exterior appearance of the hotel. Although it has a large car park, the building itself looked quite shoddy, and could do with a groundsman of some sorts, as the plants surrounding the entrance, were littered with rubbish, and cigarette butts, So first impressions, weren't great.
However, we arrived in reception, to be greeted, by the most loveliest, friendly receptionist. She was just lovely, and explained the layout of the hotel, pointing out the bar area, restaurant, and pool area, before handing us our key.
The room itself was great. Very clean, although the view wasn't the best. lovely en-suite, with very comfortable double bed, TV, and tea & coffee facilities, which was a welcome sight after a 90min drive!
Plenty of hot water in the shower, Lovely fresh, crisp white bed linen, and fluffy white towels.
After a good nights sleep, we headed down to the restaurant around 8.45am for breakfast. We were immediately given a table, and told to help ourselves to cereal, toast and fruit juice, and that someone would take our order for anything cooked. However, once we placed the order for some bacon, eggs, beans and mushrooms, it was a whole 55mins before we received it.. And then couldn't eat it, as everything had been fried, and was swimming in oil.(yuk!)
We checked out at 11am as requested, and the same receptionist that was there on our arrival, was behind the desk. She was very apologetic about the restaurant service.
On reflection of our stay, I paid just £70 for 1 nights b&b, and believe it was value for money. I wouldnt have paid the full price of £149, however I would stay at this hotel again if we were in the area.
