We chose this hotel because we were going to a football match at the adjoining stadium. Everything was as you would expect from a new build - good facilities, spacious comfortable room etc. - but it felt very soulless. Even though the bar was busy before the game our friends commented that it felt like we were in an airport waiting for our flight! Convenient for M4 but not much nearby - £8 taxi ride into town. Got it for a good price though so more than happy with our stay.
Check in was difficult for me with two people on reception at 1am not being able to find my booking.
The room was great. Overlooking the lake with s great balcony.
Breakfast was decent. Until I found mold on the cheese.
Pool was closed. Even though it's still advertised.
Stayed on Saturday night. Request for quiet room was supplied. Room and hotel was spacious and in good condition. Hotel had gym and pool which was an unforeseen extra considering the low price of under £50 room only.
