Although in a great location with easy parking and excellent amenities this hotel leaves a lot to be desired. The self check-in is very impersonal and the room that I had very dingy with inadequate lighting. It's a cross between 70's decor and modern low energy lighting. The bathroom was clean but grubby, the towels clean yet hard, and the... More

I have heard good things from colleagues about this hotel so decided to give it a try... On arrival the hotel is very poorly sign posted and very dark (no outside lights) - parking was a nightmare! I was then greeted by a lovely member of staff at the front desk who helped me to check in. Everything was great... More

Room and facilities lovely as usual. We've been coming here for 12 years for Xmas shopping trip. Made a monumental error booking dinner package. Vile inedible meal which was refunded but any restaurant which serves Smash potatoes with frozen chicken kievs is not a restaurant as I know it.

Friendly welcome and good service throughout our stay. Enjoyed the food and drinks in the on-site pub, we eat there twice and had plenty to choose from. Breakfast was well stock with a good bread select to boot.

I booked in June 2016. Since then the hotel has had what I was told a 'migration'. By 'migration' they mean they have changed a few things including early check-in/out times. When I booked the early check-in was 1200 now it is 1300. I arrived at 1225, only to be told that early check-in was 1300. When I informed the... More

Lovely welcoming stay. Club room was excellent. Breakfast terrible, a real let down. The scrambled eggs did not taste real, the ketchup was watered down and tasted cheap. The staff were not able to remember who they were serving - had to request a hot drink three times. Felt uncomfortable as a single traveller sitting at a 4 person table... More
