The restaurant food and service is good, however serving times are too long.
We booked dinner b&b, but menu didn't show this option, so caused confusion.
New manager in, who acknowledged problem, resolved and was told he was working through it.
As always, not good after long journeys!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scotty99 Poor Resturant and Bar offerings.
See previous notes about bar and restaurant.
A promise to restore may encourage me to return, otherwise I will use another local hotel for future visits.

Having stayed here many times with various levels of quality this time was rather disappointing
In the room a sweet wrapper and hairgrip were lying on the floor, In the bathroom the silver cover on the shower hose was broken and hanging loose. The air conditioning unit would only blow cold air.
At the pool the Jacuzzi did not have any water in it.
The final straw was on the Sunday morning the fire alarm went off twice, this just made the fact that the room cost a bit more than usual somewhat annoying.

We booked this hotel for a relaxing break. The reason why we choose this hotel was mainly due to the leisure facilities including pool and Jacuzzi. On arrival we were greeted by two young staff member on reception who appeared to have only just left school, and had a disinterested and dismissive attitude to match. I find it difficult to believe that they were complying with any kind of corporate dress policy as one at least wold have looked more at home at some kind of pop concert. We were very glad to be away from this area once we got through the rigmarole of booking in. the room was spacious and mostly clean. The one exception being what appeared to be a recently installed air con unit that had left a dirty bare patch of wall behind it with drill hols showing. Unfortunately our disappointment of this hotel continued when we went to the leisure facilities only to find that the Jacuzzi was not working. Given this was the main reason we booked this hotel it really spoiled things for us, especially that neither on the web site at booking, or while booking in, did anyone mention this fact. I will say on a positive note that the bed was very comfy and we both enjoyed a good night sleep, even if we were woken up very early by children running up and down the corridor (id have expected the hotel staff to monitor this and manage issues like this). Breakfast was very over priced in my opinion at £14.95 each. Given there are hotels within half a mile with better facilities, same price, more professional and polite staff, cheaper food & drink and these have weekend entertainment I would strongly advise other travellers to avoid this hotel and opt for a better alternative.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anon49 Comfortable room, poor quality evening food
Room was great and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The bar was nice and overall we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The only let down was the food.
The bar food was reasonably priced but not very nice - beef chilli did not even come with rice and was full of (unexpected) chick peas, and I would not have chosen this dish had I known - the pizza had so much cheese it was virtually inedible and was overall quite unpleasant and most of it was left by a hungry 14 year old (and leftovers refused by two hungry adults) - the fish and chips was average at best.
The breakfast buffet was not kept properly stocked - there were continually items missing from the hot buffet, there were no croissants for 10-5 minutes while more were cooked, then no butter and they just seemed a bit short of staff to replenish items.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ob one Overnight stay on journey to Bristol
Surprisingly good stay. Really enjoyed burgers for supper (check your bar bill though), and had a really good night's sleep.
Directions to find are poor, you need to stay on roundabout almost all the way round to the M6 (N) exit ( and do not confuse with the Holiday Inn Express you might see at the first exit).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phil006 long Weekend
Stayed in executive suite well away from function and general areas. This allowed a fairly quiet night's sleep, which is a key factor in my hotel choice. Breakfast good, general ambiance also good. Corridors remain noisy though (previously stayed when a Quality Inn) and grateful for thicker carpets in executive area. Would recommend an upstairs room.
