HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 April 2017 via mobile

Plenty of free parking, nicely decorated, bed very comfy and room spacious. Breakfast not massive, but adequate and nice enough. Easy check in/check out, staff were friendly on arrival. (Not needed on way out) Would stay again if in the area

Thank-you for your kind review. All of the team in every department work very hard to maintain our high standards. From house-keeper, chef to the managers, we all go the extra mile. Our breakfast has many options but we are adding to this in the summer so there will be even more available. Thanks again Wayne Garton Guest Service Manager

Apparently IHG are intent on ruining the ability of a good noght's sleep by installing high intensity green emergency lights in every room. While the normal lights are on, the little green lights are inobtrusive, but when all of the other lights are off, i.e. when you are trying to get some sleep, the little green lights bore a hole...

I use this hotel quite frequently (see other reviews) and have always found it to be very good. Welcoming, clean, easy to find, good car park etc The only room tip I can give is to stay at the rear of the hotel as if you face the car park there is a strange "whirring" noise all through the night....
