Stayed here for one night as part of a 2 day business conference. The conference facilities are quite good, the breakfast was good with a variety of food available. I found the service at reception to be very slow. When I arrived there was one other person checking in and two staff members who stared at the one computer screen...

Dear RuthS529, Thank you for your feedback from your stay at the hotel. It is disappointing to read that your check in experience was not to the normal high standard that the hotel prides itself on. On occasion, the reception desk can be busy but this should not affect you experiencing a warm welcome. I am pleased that you found...

Room was fine, price good, heated indoor swimming pool a bonus, staff helpful. Breakfast a bit of a shambles because there were so many diners. The young waiter was literally running around trying to clean up after everyone while you had two ladies sitting at the front desk having a chat!

The bathroom tiles had mould in them, the bar cupboards had split wood/chipboard and the fridge seals were covered in mould. Given this we thought, well, hopefully the bed is comfortable and room warm. We were surprised with a...
