The entire property was filthy and unkept. I have never stayed anything as disgusting and poorly run in my life. I booked a non smoking double room but ended up with a choice of a twin or a smoking double which even the staff told me to avoid. The whole place was inadequately equipped both from parking to service and finish. The gym and pool were clearly poorly maintained.
Right place, right price and spacious room.
THE PARKING IS HORRENDOUS. Brittania hotels use the europa car parking for park and fly. There is parking for 350 guest cars but in addition 400 park and fly cars are in the car parks nearly every night. Ended up in a muddy back part of the hotels grounds under a bush. Last space available.!!!!!!! This was at 17.00 !! From that time onwards guests were coming in and complaining that there was NO WHERE to park.
The place is dirty and need a makeover
I have stayed here many times. The room is always amazing eg. above the lovely garden (beer garden) with the fountain opposite the pub (this is my favourite) or the quiet large room on the ground floor. The furniture is quaint, very British, admittedly rather cheap but as sturdy as good old England. And the bed are comfy. Staff are friendly and helpful: they give you the best room still available. There is a bus connection to and from the airport but I always have taken the train to Three bridges and then a taxi from there for 4.80. Their lovely pub shuts at 2300 or 2400 (I am not sure) so there is absolutely no noise in the night.
The spa isn’t included in the hotel price which is very misleading. The only reason I found this hotel was because I searched for a hotel/spa with a steam room and hot tub because I have a back injury. When we arrived both were out of order. I don’t see why I should have to phone ahead to every hotel I stay at around the world to check to see if their advertised facilities are working ??
