Booked into carlton as derwent full. Our room was virtually opposite the lift. All we could hear when trying to sleep was the lift noise and people talking. Not a very good nights sleep. Bed was on wheels which meant it easily moved when you're trying to get in or out of bed. It wouldn't go flat against Wass either...

After coming to the TLH for a couple of years in a row, and experiencing all the complex has to offer, I have to say that some parts of the four hotels need improving. The leisure activities, such as the three pools, are great. However, much of the furniture and aesthetic is becoming dated. The wifi isn't particularly fantastic, which...

I took a coach party to this hotel for the first time in September and was a little dubious, after reading some of the comments on here. Well what a gem of a hotel. We all had a Fabulous stay. The rooms were dated, but clean and more than Adequate. I would say the only little problem, which wasn't major,...
