Smart hotel with excellent staff.
arrived at the hotel and from the outside it is a bit of a mismatch so we wondered how the rest would be. Superb is how it was. Obviously recently refurbished which has been done in a stylish way.
The bar and restaurant were well lit which gave a relaxing experience. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff very attentive. There was a wedding in progress and apart from the arrival of guests through the bar area for the evening reception, we were not aware of the wedding at all. The wedding guests were staying in another part of the hotel which left our part lovely and quiet. Well done to the hotel for the layout to assure happy wedding/ happy hotel guests.
The room itself was beautiful but a bit cramped as there is a desk, chair and inside the wardrobe a full sized ironing board. Quite where you are supposed to put it to use it was a bit of a puzzle. I would suggest that if you are using this hotel for an overnight before flying from Gatwick..... leave the cases in the car! just use an overnight bag. The room was well lit, good air con, quiet at night and ours had a nice view.
If you have mobility issues ask for ground floor as we did not see a lift.
The staff were very attentive. I used the Spa facilities and was pleased with the result. if having a pedicure you get to keep the bottle of varnish.
I would happily use this venue again and have already recommended it to friends. [Less]
