Room decor is tired but there is work happening to upgrade the hotel - bit disruptive currently but necessary & stops in the evening! This is an incredible deal for the price & meets all you could want for an overnight stay - no views & location is convenient for ongoing travel but not a luxury break space.

The late check out
Other Comments
It was unfortunate that the hotel was undergoing refurbishment to become a Holiday Inn hotel and we were allocated one of the shabbier rooms in the part being refurbished so corridors were closed and we had to make roundabout detours to get where we needed to go. Also the spa facilities were affected and we were not told that we would be having massages in the same room which was really only designed for one bed but had two crammed in - not ideal. Also we paid for an hour treatment that only lasted 45 mins at best....Other than that it was an enjoyable stay.

Breakfast was very good.

We had to wait 40 minutes from our starter to our main course after asking a waitress if we had been forgotten. I ordered calves liver, which was really overlooked, it was dry and tough. The waitress asked if everything was ok with my meal, when I said no, she laughed, thinking I was joking. Only whenI explained that it was overcooked did she offer tote me something else. This I declined, and that was the last we saw of her! There were only 5 channels available on the TV in our room, when I queried this at reception I was told it was because of the change over from one company to another. Surely TV's are capable of receiving free view channels regardless of who owns the hotel.

Their reservation staff had made a mistake by booking me in for the previous month but the front desk very quickly rectified the situation.

We had a one night stay here and visited Chatsworth and Ashbourne. From check in to check out our stay was good. The staff were exceptional, food great, the only downside was our room was a little too warm and we couldn't open the window, a fan was provided though. Would definitely stay here again.
