Well to be honest I'm not the happiest of customers. The reason being the rooms are very standard not in anyway modern very old TVs with bad reception. Some of the staff are friendly others seem to not like working there. Food isn't the greatest it's eatable. After our booking being made it wasn't in the system so had to...

Hotel was very clean and rooms were nice. Waitresses not very friendly. Bacon was terrible at breakfast but the rest of the food was very good. Had a really nice steak sandwich for dinner and no complaints

One of the most horrible beds have ever slept on. They should have been changed many years ago. Bathroom should be better cleaned . The promise of a superb continental breakfast due to cooks not starting when the tour bus was leaving ranked poor at best. Not a hotel we could ever recommend.

I am only reviewing the bar here as I haven't stayed overnight. It's just your average run of the mill place. Nothing about it screams "come in and stay a while". The two girls working were the busy but efficient to be fair, a manager type guy in a suit with grey hair really could do with some interpersonal skills...

Okay this hotel is based within oodles of car sales showrooms BUT inside it is clean, comfortable, excellent staff on reception - the breakfast is adequate - there is little to find fault with this hotel. The bar needs to invest in some cognac glasses, but as far as value for money goes - you cannot find fault with this...

Clean large bedroom. Bright bar. Nice breakfast. Bath towel a wee bit on the small side. Main issue is soft mattress. My poor back which is not in great condition. Wife doesn't have a bad back so she had a good night's sleep.
