Will not return
Having regular business in the area I was looking for somewhere that might be a 'home away from home' that could be my regular base for visits to the area. I chose an Executive room as I am prepared to pay a bit extra for a bit more comfort. I checked in and as soon as I walked from the reception to the rooms I saw the run down appearance. I did hold out some hope for the 'executive room' however these were dashed with a poorly made bed, a dowdy appearance of decor and furniture, a desk chair that had no padding in the seat, an antiquated shower and no wifi for the entire stay despite advertising free wifi throughout and me notifying the reception. I did ask reception what the difference between an executive room and a standard were and was told 'slightly more space but nothing else'. Hotels should make it very clear what the extra money on the upgrade is for.
Breakfast was sparse food-wise and fully self service which I don't mind but it would have been nice to be offered tea or coffee like some of the other guests.
Not worth the money at all and would class this hotel as a gym and pool with rooms and eatery as lack lustre add ons - pity as it actually gave a different impression on the website.

Needs ugent refurb
After feeling rather unwelcome by the desk receptionist who never even said hello can I help you or any greeting similar we were then left with an overnight stay at a very tired hotel. Old scratched furniture, outdated bathroom, dirty stained carpets throughout the hotel. I could go on but it really must have a refurb asap as best place was reception. We had hard pillows with worn sheets albeit clean, outside our door 2 pillow cases left when we checked in & still there when we went to breakfast. A wedding party was staying so was awake at 5a.m by a guest singing in a room close by for half an hour.We did not bother to complain as we had got the room cheap however other competitors at the same price are much cleaner & more updated.

Great price for 4* Hotel.
Got a half price deal, £55 for a 4* hotel was good value. Room was clean & it had a shower & bath. Had chance to use the gym,sauna, swimming pool etc all included but didn't have enough time.

Reasonable
Whilst I was looked after really well by the staff, the hotel room I stayed in was showing signs of its age and inconsiderate guests talking loudly in the rather worn out corridor didn't endear myself to the hotel. I tried the swimming pool which was nice but I get the feeling the hotel is relying on the leisure facilities too much. As I mentioned, I thought the staff were really great and I might stay again if the price was right, at the moment it is too expensive without even including breakfast. I'm not sure I would recommend it at this time.

Customer service was excellent, staff were friendly,polite and attentive, a credit to the hotel. Unfortunately our room was wasn't as clean as I would expect. I Lipstick on bathroom wall, bathroom floor was dirty and there was soap scum on bathroom walls by the shower. For an executive suite I was disappointed as there was noticeable splatter marks over desk and drawers and the lamps where badly stained and torn.
