Location - tick. Staff and Service Levels - tick. Room - oh not so good. We have stayed at this hotel a number of times previously but the latest visit was spoiled somewhat by spending two nights in a room that would be more suited to inhabitants of Lilliput. The actual room ( 109 - First Floor ) is quite...

Stayed here for one night with my mum in a twin room for a visit to the zoo the following day. Excellent location right beside the zoo, the hotel has free parking which we utilised the next day also (saving money on zoo parking). We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast deal for only £70 - for this we got...

My wife and I stayed here for one night to meet friends in the city centre. Our welcome was superb, and Nicola on front desk was so helpful and knowledgeable, in explaining about local bus service to/from the city, where to go etc - she is a great advert for the hotel group. We had a very comfortable room, no...

Superb location. Car raking was tricky just got in at the end of the park under the roof. If I hadn't I would have had to go back onto the main road and drive back again. I am still not sure if the car parking behind was for the hotel. I now assume it was, although the directions said go...

The overall stay was good we had a great night sleep. Reception staff were very polite and helpful. When we arrived at the room I think a Supervisor walked out our room (128) because our beds were getting put together.

I stayed here with h my daughter as it's situated right next to the zoo so location is perfect. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean although the bathroom could do with improvement. For what we paid the stay was ok, the breakfast is very good value with lots of choice.
