I have stayed at this hotel in the past and have always been impressed by the cleanliness and the attentive staff. Stayed recently for business and noticed some changes since the take over by De Vere. Nothing massive just the little things like in the room the light working at the tea station or a working plug in the sink....

We stayed here for one night, due to an invitation of a supplier. The rooms are quite big, and clean. Only thing really missing is a toilet brush. The complete hotel is more like a conference hotel without any Charme or lovely details. Can not understand that people do come here for weddings. The bar is unprofessional with very little...

Stay for one night on a deal with Great Little Breaks which include a meal in the hotel restaurant. The hotel is no where near the standard I would have expected for a 4 star and would say that it lacked any character or charm- was very corporate in feel. Limited selection in relation to the alcohol on offer -...

Stayed for a night following a company Christmas party. The room fine, beds were comfy and the temperature was just right. Although I found outside the room was quite noisey in the morning. The bar has a pretty unassuming selection of booze, 3 types of lager, one stout, and Boddingtons. Would have been nice to have some of the fantastic...

Don't bother if you're paying for it yourself; you can easily find much more pleasant, more conveniently located, more atmospheric, and generally more efficient hotels anywhere. Having stayed here on average 10 times a year, for the past 4 years, on business, I've seen it go from average to poor. If you love motorway services, you'll feel right at home-...

Stayed 2 nights for a conference. Refreshments were poorly stocked and awful selection - cherryade, limeade and cream soda to drink alongside tea or coffee.

Stayed overnight on Remembrance Sunday as a treat on an online offer including evening meal and breakfast. The leisure facilities were not great, the Jacuzzi was out of order (supposedly because the Chlorine levels were too high) and the steam room was no more than tepid even though it was a quiet time so no-one could be blamed for leaving...
