Unusual - basic - good spa

This appears to be a former local authority sports centre with accommodation.

Now a hotel and popular leisure centre. Originally it was an open air pool, then covered and accommodation added. The rooms are like student accommodation upgraded for hotel use: basic, a bit small but comfortable. The 25m pool and spa facilities are very good. A bit tired just now but being refurbished. Reception staff were consistently good. The breakfast is mostly good but let down by some (not all) inattentive staff and appalling sausages. The bar and evening meals were good but pricey, limited choice and no atmosphere. Cleaning was a bit hit and miss. The room was generally clean but used towels and shower gel not always replaced. A bundle of dirty towels sat in a corridor for days.

This hotel is in need of a massive overhaul.

We have stayed here on a few occasions over the years and realised that it has now become tired. we would not consider staying again unless some much needed money was spent on a refurbishment. No food ready at breakfast so people queuing, my wife ate her breakfast without me because no food was ready, several people were not happy!
