    Ok but missing smiles and spas

    For the most part the stay was great. Sadly the service doesn't tend to come with a smile. Someone else who was staying with us had an argument after the price agreed for their room on the phone was increased when it came to pay. We went down for breakfast and it was cooked to order. When we asked for a vegetarian breakfast were told that there weren't any veggie replacement options and the breakfast was limited. Actually the breakfast was fine but the staff member seemed more disappointed than us! Sadly the spa was closed for refurbishment. The spa facilities were a big reason we chose the hotel so it is pretty disappointing that we weren't informed in advance, or offered a refund. There are plenty of low review for the hotel as a result of this, none of which have been responded to. I do think management should at least acknowledge that this is a problem. Supposedly it opens again today. The decor is nice but the bed was rock solid. I assume (I hope) that our mattress was one which is due for replacement as part of the refurbishment. The double bed was two singles pushed together. This hotel has a huge amount of potential but it needs some customer service and renovation completions for sure.

    Lovely stay!

    We had a lovely time, but there was limited gins available, which didn't really hinder our experience at all though. Would recommend to a friend!

    Travelled for the weekend. Booked a suite which was very tired looking. Bathroom was new but the rest basic. Lift didn’t work do we had to carry case down 2 flights stairs. The spa was closed, which we weren’t told about when booking. We had water bottles in the suite but they weren’t replenished. When I rang reception she told me you get 2 for your stay regardless of booking 2 nights, if you want more you have to pay. Disappointed with the hotel wouldn’t come back.
