Dated & Overpriced
Rooms were a little dated, however they were really clean. For the price (over £300 per room per night) you would expect parking to be included, not an additional £20 to park off site! Spa opening times are not great - can’t check in until 4pm and it closes at 6pm. Nice outdoor area, but drinks are expensive (£47 for a beer, wine & 2 vodkas) Much better hotels in the area for less.
