No big complaints, the hotel is in need of some cosmetic updating but this doesn't mean it didnt do what I needed. I hot a good nights sleep every night, something I haven't always managed in mire expensive hotels. The staff were friendly enough and check in was fine. Room was clean although bathroom could do with a refurb. No... More

My wife and I stayed here recently as part of a party of 10 on a 2 day break with National Holidays. We all found the hotel clean and nicely furnished although the tables in the dining room were basic. Our rooms met the same good standard. In fact I was pleasantly surprised going by some of the previous reviews.... More

Stayed here for one night on business in the area. Chose it for the fact it had a swimming pool. Nice to laze in a hot tub when you've driven 7 hours. It wasn't hot and you have to pay £4 to enter the leisure facilities! Next the room. Duvet is too small for the bed. Doesn't even go over... More
