Friday/Saturday stay on way to NEC event. Have stayed here before and happy to do so again.
Arriving on Friday was surprised at the car park being like a bike repair garage. Turns out a couple of the women's cycling tour teams were stationed here and hard at their work preparing for the racing in the area the following day. Didn't create any issues so not a problem in any way.
Last time we were here we were disappointed with the nearest pub/restaurant so decided to give the hotel a go instead for our evening meal. The food was really nice and subject to a bit of a discount deal (informed at reception on check in) which made it really good value as well. So good we ate there BOTH nights!
Once again we had the superior room and this was in the "new" block. Lovely size and good bathroom amenities. Comfortable bed, very peaceful as at rear of building overlooking fields.
Breakfast (buffet style) plentiful and tasty. Second day really busy as Wedding on site previous evening and presuming many guests had stayed over. Staff coped really well though.
Saturday night certainly turned out to be eventful as Fire Alarm triggered in the early hours. Plenty of guests wandering around confused with no hotel staff around (well not around the new block). Had to go to reception to find out what was going on.More
