'new'probably isn't so new now! Yes I think the rooms are now all similar and management has changed in the past few years. The 'new' wing is that built above leisure centre rather than the old hotel ..... But it's probably about 15 years old now! All rooms are of a good standard...have satyed many times and no problems at all
I know the restaurant we had breakfast in had a gluten free selection ... honestly not sure how extensive it is though BUT if you phone the hotel I’m sure they will try and accommodate you .
Hope this helps
A lovely hotel you will enjoy, staff were very accommodating ,breakfast was good especially the porridge, and the food in the restaurant at night was tops. I can't remember if there walk a bath in the room or not, but as has already been said request one from the hotel
