The Marriott of Arden hotel is set in a very nice location with a golf course surrounding the area , the hotel has a lovely swimming pool and sauna, The rooms are very clean and comfortable with its own bars and conference rooms, A great stay for the keen golfer or you could take a nice stroll around the grounds

My recent stay here was OK but nothing special. The hotel is starting to look a bit tired and for £150 a night on a Friday night I would have expected better than this. As an example, the mens' toilets just off the main foyer were semi-blocked up, sinks left with dirty water in and all rather smelly. All in... More

Stayed here a couple of days for meetings. The hotel is at a great location surrounded by a golf course. The rooms are ok but can be very far from the stairs. Food is good as well as the service. Unfortunately did not play golf.
