Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tonyann61 It's an IHG so that means quality...but
It's an IHG Hotel so that means everything is of a great standard and that why I stay in them. On first look this hotel was big and inviting with large reception areas and expansive corridors, but that size is a drawback. The car park is at the rear of the hotel and the walk through to the reception with any heavy cases without wheels is bit of a trek, but the walk does show off the great (if a bit dated# interior. All the amenities as per expectation for the IHG hotel, with the food really exceeding #I only ate in the bar area), service was quick and the portions were more than plentiful without being over facing.
However, I do have one big complaint and that if reserved for the Wi-Fi. The service is advertised all over the hotel as High Speed and up to 250mbs. In my Executive Room I could only manage a variable 11mbs, I could not even manage to use my mobiles 4G service and we were within the M25 boundary. In the bar area, the Wi-Fi was hardly any better, with an average of 34mbs but most times less. Therefore I was not able to get much productive work done on my laptop and it was this that let the hotel down in the end. In this day and age, good Wi-Fi is paramount.

A good quality hotel, excellent and large bed. Bar choice is limited, likewise the bar food menu.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bikerchris28 Very friendly staff
From the moment I stepped in the door I felt very welcome, excellent service. Lovely room and restaurant. Very nice hotel. Food and drink were a bit pricey but I put that down to being close to London.
I would recommend this hotel :)
