    Nice place to stay in general, bathroom getting a bit old. and why pay extra for a cappuccino at breakfast ? Why do you have to ask a plate for breakfast - could be put on the buffet no ?

    Overnight business stay
    Its was ideal as a stay over - I needed a comfy room close for work .
    Nicola, gb1 night trip

    Worst food I have had in many years, the fish was frozen, maybe 20 years previously. The place needed a complete refurb - maybe also 20 years ago. The big bedroom was laid out in such a way that if the wardrobe had doors - they wouldnt open - so they left them off. The car park lights are so strong Id bet pilots trying to land at Stanstead get confused. Would be OK but as my room faced the car park it meant my room was never really dark. The radiator made a constant noise, at 3am I stopped that by turning it down. Bad stains in the bathroom. There is no restaurant and the bar (Cafe) is very basic and as stated dont have the cod - its not edible. At 7pm when I arrived the breakfast buffet area (also in the bar/cafe) was laid out and Id bet it stays like that 24/7 every day of the year..... Im glad I did not try the pool - the smell of chlorine (outside of the pool room) was such that I would doubtless need an optician had I done so. The carpet is of a lower quality than one gets at exhibitions for part time stands - maybe £1.00 a sqm and it seems to be glued down and does not even meet. Trip hazard, health hazard, just BAD. I was told 40 people stayed the night I was there. There were 7 in the "cafe" so 33 ate out = wise move, and in the morning there were 3 people in the pool so 37 were lucky to have avoided it. This place is a DUMP. AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS. One thing: Staff were nice and friendly and good but I do feel sorry for you working there.
