The so called wifi was non existent. We even sat in the bar area where
it was supposed to be the strongest.. Oh yes you can get a home page up,
but forget typing anything in and getting a response !! it didnt work in
the 3 days we stayed there. No hair dryer in the room, we asked for one
at reception to be told there were none as people steal them !!
breakfast was a shamble..... Pay attention to the notice in the lift
that says when the breakfast area is the busiest. This is becasuse the
area isnt big enough for all the guests... People were queuing for
approximately 20 mins to be seated. The problem is that the tables were
nt being cleared quick enough and old plates were just being left on
about a third of the tables. Quite simply they need more "
clearers" ! so, go to breakfast early ! the breakfast itself was
On entrance of the hotel the staff served us very quickly, and were very
friendly and helpful. This is priceless in a hotel as the staff are the
first people you see after a long journey, and I understand that it must
be hard to smile at people all day ! the location is brilliant, its
literally right in the middle of town, and walking distance to pretty
much everything. The car park itself is really big too, so ok for larger
vehicles and we always found a space despite a wedding being held at the
hotel. Bare in mind this is a large hotel that does do many weddings,
there is a hall that caters for this, so be aware there will be noise
from the music until late in the evening.If you dont like this ask for a
room away from the wedding area, the hotel is big enough to have rooms
that the noise wont be a problem in !! the hotel itself is quite grand
on entrance, very spacey inside, plenty of areas to sit, plenty of
grounds outside, not big enough for a walk about in, but enough to sit
in when sunny. Dinner was average, small menu, although served very
quickly. Dining room itself quite nice, moderate dressing up required.
The room was average, bare in mind this is an old hotel, so the rooms (
or the one we had) look a bit oldy woldy. It did have both a bath and a
shower in it, and apparently this is so in all of the rooms. They also
cater for dogs as well.
