Stayed overnight for work. My room was comfortable and at the end of a very long corridor. If you don't want to be so far away ask reception to give you a room near the lift. Went to breakfast at about 8.15 and there was no queue. It was building up as I left. Breakfast was a

I booked 2 nights bed and breakfast on line prior to travel. When I arrived to check-in I asked if I could cancel breakfast as this was available at the training location. The lady on the desk told me that she couldn't do it at the time but it would be reimbursed when I check

Very disappointed! Should not be a 4* extra cost for spa and it’s just a sauna, the reason I choose this because it said it had a spa . To me a spa is the works.. everywhere else with a spa has had jacuzzi, pool, steam room, sauna plus treatments ! This is a let down especially

Let me start with the good - granola at breakfast, and the room was spacious and clean. Close to the train station. The staff seemed indifferent. From the business centre, front end, and restaurant it was average at best in terms of customer experience. Hotel is oddly shaped

Check in was 3pm, but because we had paid for a package which was a deep tissue back massage we was also allowed to use the steam room and sauna free of charge. Otherwise this has an extra charge of £10 per person. The massage wasn't worth the extra money and the sauna wouldn't be worth the extra £10 either. You can book on the day for treatments depending on availability, but people was being herded around like cattle so maybe book in advance. Describing itself as a spa quite frankly made us giggle at the end. The hotel is clean and the food was acceptable. The staff was rude and abrupt. My advice is to try a spa, that is not an hotel with a couple of treatment rooms and a sauna calling itself a spa. good luck

The hotel has a car park in the grounds...Not sure the rate but must be cheaper than any other car park.. Also the hotel has character and is well situated for walking into town.. You get what you pay for...
