I thought this would be a lovely way to meet up with family but actually it felt like an average experience. Previously we had all met up in the Farnborough hotel and this was good- somehow with the same formula (of excellent facilities e.g. gym, restaurants and starbucks being in one place) this experience was not as good. I think a big reason for this was a large party going on in a section of the hotel that had been hired out. Due to this the quality of the food suffered greatly in other parts of the hotel. There were a ton of annoying children running around and I found it all very irritating.
The rooms are very average in size. You have everything you need so comfortable I guess. No 'do not disturb' sign so the cleaner nearly walked in.
The food was disgusting - especially the breakfast. There was a hair in my milk to which we complained. The breakfast felt like a 'halls of residence'- people were being pushed in and out like cattle. The sausages looked uncooked.
A male gym worker was rude and told my husband off for not returning the towel to the correct place- this was humiliating. How was he to know? Although an excellent gym there was no water. I felt like I was going to pass out and there was no water?!! At least I could not find a water tank.
The bar had no cocktail list and many drinks you could get in most pubs were not in this one- not impressed.
I have no reason to return to this area ever again. I think if I did I would not visit this hotel. I may try another devere village hotel.
