Breakfast great for choice. Leisure facilities nice and relaxing

Room was dark,limited daylight coming in. Hotel is more for business than for leisure. Free wine was cheap tasting certainly not a 15.00 wine.

Just one problem, no where to dry swimming costumes! Note to hotel management, a spin dryer in the changing area would make a big difference.

Rooms were very clean and comfortable and staff very polite , on the negative side the health spa didn't. Offer any treatments which meant traveling to another spa to get them which was a bit inconvenient also the jacuzzi bath was broken and they didn't have any loungers around pool if you wanted to just relax which was very disappointing,

Lovely night away in a quiet hotel. However, there isn't much nearby to do
Other Comments
The hotel is obviously geared up to conferences, rather than a hotel experience - the rooms are comfortable and functional, but not overly luxurious
