We booked this hotel last minute as our original hotel let us down. As the stay was for my birthday we opted for a 'Feature Room' as oppose to a 'House Double' or 'Classic Double' as we wanted something with a bit more luxury. The feature room looked perfect with modern decor, a four poster bed and a free standing...

On the last review made by Mick&sally15 it confirms just how some people haven't got an inch of personality and like to complain about any little thing.
