We stayed here this week, and although not perfect, for the price and facilities this was was very good indeed and I would highly recommend it. For the price you pay, you get a lovely clean, modern room, parking is simple and the staff are very helpful. You are 15 minute walk from the City, and the real value add...

There wasn't an option between average and very good. I would class this hotel as above average but good not quite very good. Reception staff not particularly warm or welcoming including duty manager who smelled strongly of smoke over the counter. Dinner quite nice but service a bit off hand. Breakfast vast choice but not great quality and again staff...

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your recent review.. I have to confess that I don`t recognise the hotel from your description - particularly the reference to "grimy tiles" which is so very much at odds with all other reviews. Paul Eaves General Manager

Myself and my partner stayed there this weekend and had a wonderful time. On arrival I have to admit the welcome wasn't out of this world and made me wonder and potentially doubt what the room and facilities were actually like. The room itself was wonderful and I was lucky enough to be upgraded without evening asking. The room was...

I have stayed at this hotel many times both through work and for pleasure. I have always had a great stay in the past and indeed there much that was good this time round. The welcome is cheerful, the quality of the food and spa is just right and the breakfast plentiful and generally a very good standard. Rooms and...

This is a great hotel and the staff should be really proud of themselves, they are always welcoming and friendly and nothing seems too much trouble. Rooms are spotless and comfortable and the bar / social area is great... or if you don't want to stay in the hotel it's an easy 10 minute walk into the town... my one...

Just trying to book a room at this hotel has been challenging. The website that appears legit crashed when I tried to make a booking, the contact number on the website directed me to someone with limited English.(apparently its run by Expedia) I called the hotel reservations directly to book 2 double rooms for one night.

This hotel is amazing! We received a free upgrade upon arrival which was a bonus! The room was absolutely beautiful, like nothing I've ever stayed in before. If you are looking to impress, or like to stay in luxury then this hotel is for you. Haven't got a bad word to say about it.

Stayed for one night in March. I was a student at the university so came back for a catch up with old friends. The hotel has a lovely entrance/ lobby. From what I saw, the whole place was very clean and our rooms were perfect for what we needed. There was no noise from other guests. The location is great...

Sadly only able to spend one night at this lovely hotel ( second visit ). Everything is well thought out and beautifully presented. Food was excellent, room lovely, staff helpful and friendly. No time to wallow in the spa pool but maybe next time.

I stayed there on business and the rooms I booked for myself and colleagues were magnificent. I have travelled the world and have never had such a luxuriously appointed room. I had a suite where I entertained my guests and everything was fantastic. The food , dinner and breakfast were also excellent with a good selection to choose from. Car...
