    Staff were excellent - very friendly and effeicent. Pool and spa very nice and location good.

    Wifi wasn't consistent and sometimes slow. The outside decor does not do the hotel justice - looked more like a butlins than the luxury hotel it is.

    The place was very welcoming, very clean, great staff.

    The rooms were too close together, cleaners would come far to early, rooms lact the value of the price paid, wifi did not work, taps would make disturbing noises when they were turned on, rooms were very small, the TV was not very good quality, dinner and breakfast is very expensive.

    Loved having a Lift! Didn't use spa/pool but would have liked to-others were enjoying it. Quiet street so excellent sleep

    Reception was disorganised but ok

    The selection of food available and service in the bar and restaurant were beyond expectations. Facilities were good.

    The decor in the bedroom was a little tired and would benefit from redecoration.

    You have really amazing staff forking there! That is your big bonus. Facility are ok but looks a bit tired at places specifically outside in front.

    Attention to detail. Limescale on taps and quiet a lot in the bath too. Big black hair in the toilet. You should change your check out time for a bit later.

    Comfortable beds, friendly staff, great pool. Personalised cookies for children. Free Wifi (but see negatives)

    Expensive restaurant. No air con and a window that opened no more than an inch, and no fan even resulting in not a good night's sleep. For a family of 2 adults and 2 children, only 3 robes (2 adult, 1 child) & 3 sets of towels provided. Yet 2 childrens cookies so obvious that 2 children were coming. So a little more attention to detail; needed. Wifi was a bit hit & miss.

    Location - great for breaking up a long journey

    Breakfast was served far too late. We had an early start so could not make it (and we had booked on a B and B basis). there was a notice up telling visitors that the breakfast time would be very busy - surely the simple answer is to serve breakfast for longer???

    The staff were helpful and friendly all the time.

    The bar wasn't staffed until 4:30 pm so to get served we had to go to the coffe bar.

    Liked the swimming oil and jaccuzzi, the room was nice, our dinner was excellent, and the staff were friendly.

    it was dark1 everywhere was bathed in a dim light which may have been meant to be relaxing but just made it hard to see where you were going. The food and drink was expensive, and the spa treatments unaffordable to many I would imagine. Its location at the edge of ahousing estate was peculiar, and inside it was more like a country hotel but outside looked like crossroads motel.

    The room was an ok size, bearing in mind we had a family room with bunk beds, plus the sofa bed extended out for our older son. But if we had been staying longer than one night, it would definitely have felt cramped. The bathroom was pleasant and clean if a bit small, with plenty of good towels and nice toiletries. The welcome cookies for the boys was a nice touch, along with complimentary water and juice cartons (unfortunately no fresh milk in the fridge, as described).

    I know it was late when we arrived, 11pm-ish, but a more cheery welcome would have been nice. Unfortunately, not enough complimentary bathrobes in our room, and way too small for the kids; then couldn't get any extra at the pool! Restricted time for kids in the pool (no entry between 9 and 10am) meant it was then mobbed from 10 onwards, and not a big pool to begin with. And to try and keep a swimming lane in place with a tiny sign at the opposite end, and no rope marking, was not such a great idea either! Felt sorry for the elderly couples who would have been better using the pool between 9 and 10. More clear information to everyone on this facility, via the website and at check-in, would have benefited all....and probably a limit to numbers in the pool at any one time would help everyone enjoy it. Did not appreciate trying to be charged a fee for paying with my Amex card the next morning!
