          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Room was very comfortable, large and spacious.

            I thought the corridors and decor was a little tired. OH and the 5:00am and 5:33am fire alarm with the firebrigade !

          • Couple
            8.8

            Hotel was decorated very modern, ate in the restaurant which was lovely, staff very helpful and pool/sauna was great.

            very thin walls coud here every word from others rooms

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Room prices were excellent during the festive period. The selection of food available for adult and child was very good with large portions. Facilities at the hotel included wifi, pool, sauna, steam room as part of the price. Room was clean with large screen tv with freeview.

            Nothing

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The hotel was out of the city centre however the local bus service (No 26) was excellent. Every 6 minutes to city centre. The leisure centre was was well equipped and the pool was lovely and warm. The kids and I used it several times. The choice, quality and service of the food was excellent. Value for money on all counts. I would go back and would certainly recommend to others.

            I couldn't access WiFi in my room.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The staff were extremely helpful especialy a young blonde young lady on reception who was very helpful when we booked in.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            we were able to access the swimming pool from the hotel, really enjoyed the pool experience. Staff were very friendly especially the reception staff. Bedding was immaculate.

            travel cot looked a bit tatty.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Staff very helpful, arranged an early check-in for us so we could get changed for a 2pm wedding. Hotel was clean & modern, very comfortable, with good facilities. Recommended!

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Great views from restaurants and rooms facing West

          • Older travelers
            9.0

            We loved the up to date facilities. Rooms were very clean and obviously well cared for. The staff was very helpful.

            Since a lot of parking was in the back of the facility - an entrance from the back - rather than through the sports club would be really helpful.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Convenience of check-in, check-out, restaurant location and service and location near airport.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The food in the bar was nice.

            The room was comparable with a much cheaper one. I did not feel it was good value for money.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The rooms were lovely and excellent for the price. Breakfast was delicious

            How I thought we had already paid for the hotel online, but had only reserved the room. Should be allowed to pay online in advance

          • Couple
            7.4

            Cleanliness,close proximity to airport, Well presented and prepared breakfast.

            That a reasonable package inclusive of breakfast wasn't on offer

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Good hospitality. Comfy beds, food in restaurant excellent.

            Bar food not so good. The sandwiches were too thick.

          • Single
            7.4

            Bedding & food wasn't too bad at all.

            Staff could be a little friendlier. We always had to say hello - coming in.
