    Staff were very friendly

    Was served grapes as part of a meal that were clearly past there sell by date Brown, shrivelled and very unappealing however they were swapped for apple but should have not been put on a plate and the message that came back from kitchen was that grapes come in all colours, RED, GREEN, BLACK but when they are BROWN never had before!!! Room itself was clean however the room is right next to a mainline railway and the window you would have thought was open very little sleep due to fairly regular trains through night and morning, when I was asked about my stay and I informed reception all I got was sorry for that so disappointing as a stay

    We liked the full English breakfast, swimming pool, helpfulness of the staff and the size of the room. The location was also convenient for us, near the A12, but not noisy.

    It would have been more comfortable to have a king size bed, rather than a double bed. The swimming pool wasn't available for 30 minutes when we wanted to swim, due to it being used for swimming lessons. The toiletries in the bathroom could have been nicer. The shower head was broken, meaning that a lot of water was leaking out, but the water pressure was still good.

    All facilities were OK and in line with expectations for a hotel in this price bracket.

    We arrived in the dark; the car park was totally un-lit, if I had not had a good torch with me it would have been very difficult to safely negotiate the route to reception. As it was, I fell over a bag I had just taken from the car because I could not see it!!

    We stay at this hotel as it’s the first hotel me and my partner ever stayed in together and it has a nice meaning to it. Our stay was made so much better though the smallest of gestures bit meant a lot! On our arrival the guy behind the desk asked us why we were staying so we said for our anniversary, once we got to our room we got a knock at the door about 5 minutes after with your duty manager bringing us a bottle of wine to celebrate! Was a great touch and made the day a little extra special! Thankyou
