Where to start! After arriving Thursday we were greeted and had quite high hopes. As a platinum member we were given an executive room and told our room was in a very quiet part of the hotel( oh how I now laugh!) along with one drink voucher for two people... nice touch ..we’ll share!! Saturday night .. wedding party but to be fair where our room was .. not too noisy !!! The early hours of Sunday morning 1.30 am the fire alarm sounds so we along with the rest of the guests made our way outside along side two fire engines. Having been told thankfully it’s a false alarm no one could turn it off waited a while and let back in. The alarm went off again at 8 am but was turned off before we had to exit the building. No sleep in then we’ll just head to the crowded breakfast area with the rest of the hotel guests who had been woken up. Feeling tired we went about our Sunday returning to the hotel to go to bed early in order to catch up on sleep and get a plane in the morning. Oh joy of joy... our platinum quiet room is above the disco going on fantastic!!! Can’t sleep.. too noisy... can watch tv... too noisy... can’t read ...yup... you’re getting the hang of this ... too noisy.So having rung to reception I asked if any other surprises were in store so I could prepare myself I was assured the music would stop at midnight. My heart went out to the poor sods who booked a room that wasn’t in the “quiet” part of the hotel! This event was pre booked so surly you could tell your guests you’re going to be up half the night! No sound proofing but it’s nice to listen to next door having a chat . Don’t know how many people are in there but the party goes on... I’m sure we’ll have bonded through the wall soon!!! Moving on to the rooms if you get a double make sure you really like the person you’re sharing with as you will roll together towards the middle of the bed as soon as you’re aboard! The rooms were clean but the bathroom smelt very fusty . So having listen to ABBA simply red and many more lullaby tunes I’m going to try and sleep for the few hours before I have to get up and catch a plane. To the manager who is about to give me a bog standard robot reply of I’m sorry your stay didn’t live up to your expectations etc etc...( see other identical replies) take a moment and be creative. With thanks for a butlins experience, an extremely tired platinum member. Collapse

A very spacious and very well appointed hotel. All the facilities were very good and staff helpful. The bars were speedy while serving and very reasonably priced. Food was good even when lots of guest were there. The Leak and Potato soup was the only dodgy thing! Will definitely return to this hotel when in the area again. Collapse

I really like this hotel. It’s not perfect. Some of the public corridors are in need of decoration but my exec room was lovely with new carpet and a shed load of space. The bar, restaurant and reception are also tasteful. It’s no worse than the average holiday inn. I last stayed here several years ago when it first became a holiday inn. Because it hasn’t always been a holiday inn, it doesn’t have that lifeless corporate grey feel, intact it has character. Plus it has the use of the gym and leisure centre next door which is extremely well equipped. The food is pretty good, some portions are small but the price is reflective. Breakfast is average (porridge please), but because the staff are lovely and welcoming, and actually chat to you id return to this hotel anytime. Thanks for a nice stay. Collapse

Absolutely shocking customer service. Complained twice about the person next door who had their tv on full blast and woke my 18 month old daughter up at gone midnight. One person asked them to turn it down and that's it! Wouldn't do anything else about it. We've had to check out and come home at 1am as the manager, Andrew Neale refused to do anything else to help us despite us giving him solutions! Shrugged his shoulders and just let us check out. How he is a manager I'll never know. He either wants sacking or retraining. I'm now back at home trying to get my daughter to sleep. Will be taking this further. I'll never stay again or recommend you to anyone. Oh and apparently there are no rooms left, even though we only booked ours yesterday! Obviously they welcome people who disturb guests more then those who don't. Only gave one star because I can't give any less Collapse
