Nice hotel in a good location. Good breakfast. Room was small, bathroom was very small and not practical at all. Spa was ok but nothing special, prefer to relax around the pool rather than separate area. Parking was ok, but tight. Overall, overpriced.

London, United Kingdom15 contributions12 helpful votes
Great location but over two stays at this hotel it was clear that investment is needed to refresh the rooms. It was pretty filthy, especially the rooms. We stayed in the Lily “suite” which is a term that should not be used really. It’s just a decent sized double room. The bathroom promised so much with a jacuzzi bath, but it was filthy. We attempted to use it only to find the bath filled up with limescale when you put the jets in. Totally gross! Breakfast is great and the staff are lovely but for the price there are better places to stay in the same vicinity.

Gloucester, United Kingdom1 contribution1 helpful vote
Expected a luxury stay the night before flying out on holiday but got the opposite. Car park has very few spaces so had to leave car in public car park overnight. Receptionist wouldn’t let my partner go to the room with the bags until a credit card had been provided. The bed and pillows were so hard we got bad backs and the hotel was shoddy and run down in appearance. Worst of all, we were up for a flight at 5am but we’re kept awake past midnight because of noise from the room below and guests in corridors. Rooms are not soundproofed like most hotels in this price bracket. Save yourself the money and stay in a holiday inn!

From the moment we checked in for our spa break, our experience was pleasurable and relaxing. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the spa facilities fabulous and welcoming. The room was very comfortable and we would definitely recommend this hotel.
