if you want to be handy for a 15 minute walk into the town centre. The hotel is well kept, rooms nice, clean, comfortable. We had a two night stay on an Autumn break deal (club room) which included a contribution to dinner which in fact covered the cost of the meals (excluding drinks) both nights. The meals were good,...

We booked an upgraded room as it was a Christmas treat , which was OK but nothing special compared to Hilton etc . Hotel states its situated in the city centre with 5 mins to Railway Station (probably correct) and 10 mins to the Centre, which I think is stretching it somewhat. Took afternoon tea which was nice and decided...

We had a thoroughly good time. We arrived early and were able to relax with a good coffee and the newspaper until our room was ready. The room was pristine and comfortable, everything worked! We enjoyed a great massage in the spa which we followed with time in the pool, steam room and relaxing by the pool. We decided to...

I stayed a night here in November, we had a lovely spacious suite and I definitely could have stayed a few more nights. The bed and pillows were incredibly comfortable. We visited the spa which was nice, nothing too remarkable treatment wise. Pool area is clean and bright. Breakfast was good and reasonable price for room service. Location is convenient...

Starting with the positives, the hotel is well decorated and the rooms of good size. We were visiting for our 10 year anniversary and the hotel gave us a bottle of champagne and chocolates, a lovely gesture. The breakfast buffet was also excellent. The downsides upon arrival, despite saying we were having spa treatments we were not advised that if...

Staying at this hotel for the Christmas market. Lovely place, nicely decorated, all was going well. This was until I saw a Wedding Party. Our room is directly above the disco so our floor is bouncing! Called reception to find out how long this music will go on for. I was told, ' Um maybe till half 10-11am... ' She...
