AA 4 star guest accommodation

“This call visit inspection has been carried out under the AA quality standards for guest accommodation, Leander Club has confidently retained its Four Star Grade. Since the last inspection, the club has benefited from continued investment with an on-going decoration and maintenance program in place. The individually styled bedrooms are all beautifully presented and most comfortable. Beds were of excellent quality, well dressed and soft furnishings coordinated well.

Décor was in very good condition, task lighting was efficient and there are good storage facilities in all bedrooms. Sleek modern bathrooms really hit the mark and are fitted out with quality fixtures and fittings, toiletries were neatly presented and generous sized towels in place. Public areas are in very good condition, décor was free from knocks/cuffs and flooring well fitted. Comfortable lounge areas and excellent housekeeping throughout.

I really enjoyed this visit and was impressed by the facilities and ethos behind the running of this fine club. Thank you for making this one of the most memorable visits I have had.”
