This perhaps used to be a nice hotel, but it isn't anymore. It has the feel of a hotel that is being run down to be sold or closed. My mum, sister and friend were appalled at the price of lunch and the drinks. Certainly 4* prices - and my friend spent Saturday night and all day Sunday being sick which we put down to the food. She had ordered

Sorry, this is closed, just for tonight.

Pros: Not bad price.
Cons: Room service fee of £5 is quite excessive. Inform prospect customers of closures. Customer service.
Location: Literally, nothing.
I arrive at the hotel ready for a gym session, before being told... 'It's closed, but it will be open by Thursday.' No apology just useless information. I went for a swim instead which was very disappointed. As the evening continues we decide to go downstairs and watch Monday Night Football. Only to be told that, just for tonight, the sports bar is closed... How hard is it for a company to disclose this online. Unaccepted. No workout and no football. No apologies either. Also just didn't look that good. Will not be returning.

Expensive with poor service in restaurant

Pros: The trolleys to take suitcases to and from the car.
Cons: The staff in the Sportsmans Bar who knew nothing about diets and the problems people may have
Location: Miles from anywhere but OK for Southampton
The booking in etc was OK and the man on the desk was very polite and helpful. However we went to dinner in the Sportsmans Bar and as I am a diagnosed coeliac I tried to order a meal. Unfortunately the staff didn't know what "gluten free" was, however eventually managed to bring me a sandwich and a salad plus an extra salad - all extortionate. My advise is don't go there if you need a special diet.
