Weekend visit

I would commend this hotel highly. From the outside the hotel doesn't look inspiring, but inside it was a clean modern décor throughout and our room had been recently refurbished. There was a good full and hearty English and/or continental breakfast with cold meats or fruits, so we only ate again in the evening. We tried the bar menu twice using room service and the food was very good, especially the chicken and chorizo salad. There is also an attached leisure centre with a decent pool as well as sauna and steam room. This was also very well run and organised. There probably was more facilities available but we did not use these. I also wanted to mention that the staff were very good, helpful and attentive, which also contributed to us enjoying our stay. With Richmond only 3-4 miles away, I think that this hotel is a well kept secret !

Traveller from manchester

Pros: The location
Cons: The way they deal with complaints.
Location: Great access to the A1.
The hotel it's self was clean, we had room 111, we was told this room would be nice and quite, as it's just of the front of the hotel, all we could hear was a sound of a generator all night , we mentioned this to the lady on reception, but nothing was done ,we only stayed the one night, could not wait to get home to get some sleep.

Good business trip

Having read reviews on the hotel I was sceptical about what I would discover but the location was exactly wher I needed to be for business. I shouldn't have worried as everything was excellent,the room, the staff and the food so I don't know why other people have given this hotel a bad review.

Super nettes Personal

Pros: Das tolle Schwimmbad. Gute Betten
Cons: Vielleicht eine bessere Brot Auswahl beim Frühstück (Vollkornbrot) Fön im Bad fehlt.
Location: Naja,,,, die Lage. Großbaustelle vor der Haustür.Aber da kann das Hotel ja nichts dafür. Bei geschlossenem Fenster konnte man schlafen.
Da wir sehr wenig Englisch sprechen,waren wir auf die Mithilfe des Pesonal angewiesen. Alle haben sofort langsam gesprochen und haben sich mühe gegeben uns alles zu erklären. Leider sprach keiner Deutsch. Wir waren mit unserem 6 jährigen Enkel dort, wenn ich es nicht verstanden habe konnte er helfen (er spricht Englisch)
