Enjoyed Most: Nice rooms and very friendly

Enjoyed Most: The design of the hotel
Other Comments: One their website it clearly states that they have bath amenities... We had booked a penta plus room, there was no bath which was disappointing as I had bought things specifically to take a relaxing bath with. The bar lady laughed when I asked for two cocktails which seemed very rude at first but she said it was because she didn't know how to make a strawberry daquiri...? Otherwise the reception wasn't very clear as it looked like it was a part of the bar. The lady working on reception at the time of our arrival was very good. So was the man who put our beds together as our room wasn't ready when we arrived.

Enjoyed Most: The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble and they were very easy going, providing non intrusive service.
Other Comments: The only downside is the fact that the hotel is situated adjacent to a very busy dual carriageway and the traffic noise woke me up at 5am. It was so noisy that it sounded like the window was open, when it wasn't. They need triple glazing!

Enjoyed Most: Big and comfy bed!
Other Comments: The reception and eating area is very nice, warm and modern feel. Our room was big and the bed huge and very comfortable. Only down side is the traffic noise if your room is along the motorway. So loud I thought the window was actually open.
