\ HOTEL REVIEW: THE PARK ROYAL HOTEL, STRETTON // MAY 2016 - The Adventures of Charlotte


The Park Royal Hotel
My second stay in a Q Hotel in the space of a week, how spoilt am I?! The only difference being that this was an all-expenses paid business trip with a conference thrown in. 

After my stay at The Queens Hotel in Leeds (see the post here), I had pretty high expectations for THE PARK ROYAL HOTEL in Stretton and with a 4*AA Award I was not left disappointed. 

This place was huge right from the drive in! The building seemed never-ending as soon as I'd entered the car park. To my right was the conference centre linked to the main building with a glass conservatory and to my left were many of the 146 rooms that are available as well as a clock tower placed behind the reception. A hotel which is very pleasing to the eye.

The interior was no different either! I nice open reception area which opened straight out to the lounge. The check-in process was quick and friendly and I was directed to my room on the first floor. In aim to lose weight I took the stairs rather than the life which gave me chance to enjoy the old photographs and art on the walls on the way up!

My jaw was most certainly on the floor after entering the room - it was mahooooosive! The photographs don't do the size any justice at all. After opening the door I was greeted by an entrance hall and a desk which then opened up to a gorgeous open sleeping area with a couple of chairs, a nice big bed and my favourite part of the room - a big, full length mirror! I don't normally like the colour green but this d├ęcor has changed my heart a bit, it blended in so well with the bed and the rest of the room.

Now, onto the bathroom. The last couple of reviews I've written have all seen the shower and bathroom being the downfall in size, this bathroom was ridiculous. It wasn't a box room, it was an L-shaped paradise with two sinks, two light-up mirrors and a nice big bathtub and shower. I was in my element to the point where I immediately ran the bath and jumped in before food. 

Based on the room alone I'd stay over and over again, is it possible to transport it into an apartment for me? No? okay then. 

Unfortunately I don't have any photographs of the food (it was a business event after all) but I can 100% say that it was on another planet in terms of tastiness! We ate in the hotel restaurant, Topiary In The Park and it was simply divine. For starters I had a salmon salad which even included avocado and feta cheese (love), for my main I had something slightly different, I went for a goats cheese risotto followed by a chocolate ganache for dessert. It's making my mouth water talking about it!

After a few drinks it was time for a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed - star-fishing galore! Breakfast the next morning was just as good as the main meal the night before. With a choice of continental breakfast and a hot buffet there was plenty to refill my stomach for the day.

The conference facilities were also fantastic, from the rooms to the refreshments - lunch time consisted of lots of little snacks from pizza to fish and chips! 

Overall I am extremely impressed with this hotel - in terms of facilities I didn't use, there is a pool, spa, sauna and a gym which makes this hotel perfect for a romantic weekend away or a break with the girls. Being straight off the M6 also makes this hotel a convenient commuting stop over as well as being luxurious.
