I was here for a business meeting. Lunch was ordered. However, 'as the chef/kitchen never got our order' we had to wait up to 40 minutes for our sandwiches and tea/coffee. There was no apology from an unhelpful receptionist. My advice is to take your business elsewhere.

The night away started off badly when we arrived at this 'Heritage Hotel' and thought we were staying in the other "Heritage Hotel"up the road! This place is under renovations but this didn't reflect the price we were charged for the night. The whole place was scruffy & the leisure centre was closed with no fore warning. The rooms were...

We had a 2 night break and wished we had booked for 3 nights. The room was perfect, warm, nicely decorated and the towels excellent quality. The steakhouse restaurant served superb food. All staff were very friendly. The location is perfect, shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed in this hotel before and had a wonderful time so we were looking forward to our return. Unfortunately some elements spoiled this visit. We knew in advance the pool was closed but weren't aware of the extent of the renovations. The bar was small and the selection limited. The whole experience was greatly helped by the friendly staff... More

We stayed here last summer and we had (generally speaking) a good time. What we really enjoyed was the elegant atmosphere and the spa - it was very nice. There were a few "buts" - the spa closed at 6pm at the weekend. As we checked in after 4pm we hardly had and any time in the (very nice) pool.... More
