          Excellent food and service in the restaurant. Reception was friendly and helpful

          We had asked for blanket and sheet bedding but duvet was provided. When this was queried, the duvet was removed from its cover on each bed. We did not apreciate the air conditioning and control was difficult - in a dark corner.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          It was in an ideal location for us as we were visiting family. It was very clean, comfortable and bright due to the modern design. The bar was adequate for our needs. Also the price we paid was very good due to the special rate at the time of booking. .

          The restaurant lacked atmosphere

        • Older travelers

          Location was good for what we needed. It is a new hotel so everthing very clean and new. The staff were very polite and attentive. Parking was very good.

          This is the second time we have stayed in a hotel with a glass bathroom, the first time the glass was very opaque and you couldn't see anything, however the glass in this hotel really needed to be a bit more opaque, we like our privacy and we didn't like the fact that you could see through it to a degree.

          The room was spotlessly clean, the heating was easy to work, as were the lights and blinds. The hotel was easy to find. Plenty of parking.

          The breakfast could have been better, I would have preferred a fried egg but was not offered a choice. There was no bacon left and no plates. The area to hang clothes was above the tea and coffee facilities, also very little clothes storage space for two people. Plugs very low under the shelf, not easy to get to. I booked for three days, but was only given wi fi code for one day.

        • Older travelers

          Modern clean hotel, reasonable bar prices

          Breakfast expensive for what was offered

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Good clean hotel and hopefully will be kept to present standard

          If you install a toaster that sets off the alarm at 7.30 and you cannot advise us by PA is a bit poor. Having tried the toaster afterwards had to give up as it clearly does not perform and staff had no other way of providing two slices of toast for us so Breakfast ended up being a bit expensive for a cup of juice and tea.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          No hot water in first room couldnt get heating on in either room no instructions how to work heating had to sit on the bed in coats and scarf for an hour before the room was warm my husband had kippers for breakfast had to send them back as they were not cooked no menu for breakfast could be a good hotel but needs sorting out

        • Group of friends

          Position to customer I was to visit. Bed was comfy

          Break fast service was very poor. Milk urn was empty. Had ask staff for coffee twice as they just ignorned me

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Very helpful and friendly staff - helped us promptly with our special requests. Comfortable bed. Excellent parking facilities.

          Lights not bright enough in the room and in the lobby area. No minibar in the room. Would have preferred a regular shower with normal mixer handle. Room was fairly small - we stayed 8 nights and it was clearly not designed for that (2 ppl with luggage).

        • Group of friends
          8.0

          Good location for a family funeral visit. Friendly helpful staff, rooms well equipped, clean and very quiet. Good, standard buffet breakfast, nice airy dining room.

          Lighting controls fiddly and with minimal markings, very hard to see even when on ones knees on the floor! Worked it all out though.

        • Single

          The hotel rooms are very well-appointed and clean. The day-time reception staff are very helpful and polite.

          A friend joined me for dinner in the bar on the Sunday night. After paying in advance, our money was returned and we were told the kitchen was no longer open. As room service was supposedly available until 10 p.m., I asked if we could use this option. Long story short, I was referred to the FIVE people standing around at reception, not one of whom could sell me even a packet of crisps. My friend left, as no food was available. The next morning, the receptionist told me we had been given wrong information, and room service was available 24 hours. I am dubious, and will only stay there again if there are no better options.

          The bed was very comfortable.

          There wasnt a fridge in the room and I didnt like the position of the tea making facilities and small chest of drawers as it blocked the hanging space for my clothes. I moved the chest of drawers to the far side of the room under the mirror and that worked for me. I would reccomend other quests to do the same.I would also reccomend that the staff at the Coniston instruct quests how to operate the lighting system and blind which I found a bit confusing when I first arrived.

        • Single
          8.2

          The most modern hotel Ive ever stayed in and it has a huge carpark.

          There are 5 lights in the room and 20 ways that you can have them configured - why? completely pointless and so confusing. Loud music played in reception that you can hear throughout the hotel until midnight. Its like trying to sleep in a shopping mall. Breakfast not good.

          modern comfy room and very helpful staff.

          7.4

          The front of house staff were excellent, the waiters/waitress's were very poor and the food was very poor!
