    Lights did not work. One pillow disappeared and there were no spares.Cheff failed to turn up for breakfast one morning so we went elsewhere. Single bed very high and wobbley. Would not accept credit/debit card asked for cash. Complimentary meal offered as a good will gesture but there were no steaks available only lamb as a substitute. Not very satisfactory as I wanted a rib eye steak.

    food ok

    well where do i start, i booked this for a family break to the f1 track because of the location. i never will go back it was filthy & the noise frome the street outside was unreal, not so mutch the traffic but the screeming & fighting going on late at night from the club across the street. the parking was ok but, when you came to the entrance all you could see was fag ends all over the place, along with the grubby tables. what would it cost to give it a tidy up not a lot. all in all the room we had was filthy as was the toilet i took pics of it just to show friends how bad it was for the money we had to pay (up front). lots more i could add but i will put that on the webb page.

    Book for the room with extra bed. When we arrived, the hotel told us that could not put the extra bed and offered another type of room which was more expensive. Should advertise for what facilities that can offer. The hotel has bad smell and not clean.

    The room - Toilet didn't flush, The toilet door would not close, the towel rail fell off the wall, the bedsheets were stained, there were cobwebs on the window, cleanliness of room left a lot to be desired, Could not find an english speaking member of staff to speak to on the Sunday morning to complain to. Had to wait 40 minutes for an English speaking member of staff to complain to and check out. Staff member said 'sorry - you don't expect that', but didn't offer a reasonable explanation (is there one) or any recompense or refund. If we had not already been asked for payment on checking in we would have challenged any payment at all.

    The hotel rooms are spacious and pleasant. Both rooms were clean on arrival.

    One of the two bedrooms was not cleaned, nor the bed made, cups washed or towels changed throughout the 3 day stay. This was pointed out but not rectified. The toilet in one bedroom did not flush without removing the cistern lid to adjust the ball cock. This was reported to bar staff first thing on Saturday morning but was not attended to throughout our stay. Breakfast was uneatable. Tea served in a cup-teabag in hot water, no saucer. On day 2 tables were set around us as we arrived for breakfast at 9.15. We ate our toast off saucers as no side plates were provided. At no time, during our stay, were there any other than bar staff or cleaners to raise issues with. These staff appeared wholly unsure how to deal with the issues being raised. Throughout our stay I would say there was a staffing issue at the hotel, most clearly evidenced at breakfast time. There are either insufficient staff to do the job properly or those doing it are insufficiently competent. Where you are charging top rate for hotel accommodation there is a duty to provide service to that standard. I subsequently wrote a letter of complaint to the hotel, which was completely ignored.

    The beds were comfortable

    The bathroom was very tired, and needed a bit of tlc, as did the windows.We were kept awake by the karaoke downstairs, until gone midnight. Then outside noise from nearby clubs and pubs disturbed our sleep until about 3 am

    Proximity to the Designer Village

    Where shall I start? Bathroom: Toilet did not flush. Towel rack fell out of wall. Bathroom window frames, pipe covering all broken and dirty. Shower either full power or off. Bedroom: Plaster broken under window. Matress ancient. Lighting poor. No hairdryer. Old plastic bags left in drawers. Whole room and bathroom needs to be gutted, replastered, new fittings installed, painted and new furniture installed. Thencleaning staff retrained to look for faults and report them. Breakfast: No mushrooms, no tomatoes yet both still on menu. Definitely not worth the money we paid for it.

    The hotel was a last minute booking so I was not expecting anything other than a bed. The bar staff doubled as the reception and another resident's shower did not work. When he asked what could be done, he was told nothing until the next day. He asked to change rooms, but was told the hotel was full. If you want a budget hotel - go to a chain!
