Stayed there for my friends wedding. Lovely room and hotel. But the bar staff were rude and far from friendly. Plus our room was freezing cold and the coffee machine and iron in our room didn't work.....

The hotel caters for weddings and parties. I was woken at 1.30am by drunken revellers trying to find their room and then a van being loaded with equipment outside the window. Finally quietened by 2.30am. The room was adequate but for £140 (room only) expected much better. The refurbished ground floor is rather garish and the restaurant had no ambience...

Recently stayed in a double room for £50 B&B - excellent room (not yet refurbished), very clean and comfortable, with large en-suite, lovely bed, tea & coffee and toiletries. We really enjoyed our first visit to the champagne bar - serving champagne, cocktails, wine and tapas. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, lovely decoration and a relaxed atmosphere - we will...

The Hotel is very nice generally but we found our double room a little cramped. Fine for a weekend but not so good for a longer period of time. The room was nicely furnished and very clean. A small bathroom without bath but with a shower which wasn't a power shower. We stayed on the second floor to the right...

I haven't been to this hotel for years, but was so impressed with the smartly turned out staff who had impeccable manners. The hotel looks so smart and is in a good location. I love the champagne bar!

Really first class hotel. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The decor of rooms and common can only be described as first class. Do try the champagne bar. Our only criticism was that we had too long a wait to get our food in the restaurant . One hour to receive your main course was far too long.

The Indian restaurant and its staff were great. The room we stayed in was lovely but these are the only good points. The main restaurant was fully booked for dinner our entire stay and due to staff sickness there were no spa treatments available to book. The spa was pretty crowded and the steam room was out of order all...

We booked a stay here, rather than at one of the chain hotels, ahead of a channel tunnel crushing. Great room, one of they newly refurbished, which was excellent and well thought out with good amenities and, most importantly, a fantastical comfortable bed. Parking was easy right in front of the property, and staff smart & professional. Breakfast was excellent...
