    Quite Nice
    Thought for the nightly rate the property offered good value for money. Includes free fitness services use and ample free parking. Only downside was it’s a little in the middle of nowhere for my personal needs.

    No iron
    Staying away with business and needed to iron my shirt for client meetings. Simply told there was plenty of ironing boards but no irons and there was nothing they could do...

    Expected more
    Check in was efficient and staff at desk very welcoming. Room was basic, bed not the best for me. Not a lot of selection for dinner, basic bar food menu, went for big salad which was tasty, although needed a bit of something else (jacket potato maybe) for main meal. Breakfast is a self service buffer and was almost cold in the morning. For fellow runners, the triangulr lap around the block is just under 5k, although recommend head torch or something to make visible as unlit most of the way.
