The bathroom was ridiculously small - shower toilet and sink too close together, could hardly move when door was shut.

Also, no staff around when we walked in for breakfast, had to wait 15 minutes for someone.

Ensuite was tiny with a wet shower therefore when you showered, everything in the room got wet.

to make matters worse the extractor fan didn't work.

The room was small.

The staff at reception. The breakfast was bad and the service was bad.

The double room was the smallest I have come across in all of the hotels I have stayed in.

The bathroom was in need of a facelift and the basin was cracked. The staff were all friendly and polite. Although the hotel could do with a general makeover and looked tired in places, it was good value for money. The pool, gym and sauna are worth a visit.

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!

The website did not match the hotel's actual appearance, inside and out.

Breakfast excellent - served to order.

Evening meal good although bar area was too cold for comfort. Swimming pool and gym are great attractions, free to guests. Free WiFi too. However, plumbing in my room was absolutely dreadful - woken at 05:15h by noisy gurgling from sink. Even closing the sink outlet did not stop the noise. The hotel must surely know about this fault and has done nothing to correct it.

Staff Service

The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful at this venue.

Whilst they were incredibly busy on check-out, the staff remained calm and courteous.
