For the budget price, the room was modern and clean, and relatively large which was a bonus. All fixtures and fitting looked fairly new, and everywhere had a fresh smell. The bathroom was very modern and well stocked with shower gel and towels etc. The restaurant was small but the food was very good and the staff were excellent (very... More

Having stayed in Best Western before for business I was feeling at ease at placing my booking. Unfortunately this wasn't up to the standard of others. Some of the staff were very pleasant and friendly, some were not. The walls were stained and dirty in the room. The constant banging of doors was a constant unfortunate noise. They had an... More

Good location just a short walk from the high street etc. Nicely presented bar & restaurant areas, friendly helpful front desk. Competent, polite bar & waiting staff. Good buffet style breakfast full English & continental selections. Expect around £100 a night for a family room with breakfast. Free parking.

We stayed overnight here as my cousins 30th was just down the road. From the outside the hotel doesn't look the best, more like an old people's home but don't let that put you off. Checking in was nice and the reception was welcoming. The hotel looks to have had a lot of money spent on the inside: the room... More

Had to book a suite as no standard rooms available. Hottest day of the year and the suite has no air conditioning. Staff provided a small fan. The king bed is two singles pushed together. Attitude of manager is awful. Value for money poor. Avoid.

Dear Mr Keech Thank you for taking the time to complete a Tripadvisor review. We do not advertise the Duplex Suites as having Air Conditioning. The size of the bed is in fact a Super King Size Bed and made up of 2 beds zip-link together. Which are designed for hotels and usually we get compliments on such. Whilst I... More
