Only go to this hotel if you are on business. The rooms are fine, comfortable beds. The menu has a VERY limited choice, the food wasn't hot, the coffee came before the desserts. The staff tried to make amends and offered us a free drink, we would have preferred a far better meal. The breakfast was ok exactly what you...

Clean place with good service. The rooms are a little bit too much old fashion and in general old. There is not a bar in the room (or at least I did not find it). To find a good Pub it is necessary to move with the car! Approx 2.5 miles far is the first nice place.

Came on business not expecting much but I must say I was very pleased. Great facilities pool and gym. Room very comfy and big with a good size area to work but needs updating a little. Friendly staff and very good food with a good selection to choose from.

Stayed here with work for 4 nights. The room was bright and clean. I feel that it could do with a bit of redecorating and new furniture. There was a desk big enough for my laptop and endless bits of paper! There was a big flat screen tv, not much in the way of channels though. Breakfast was nice and...

I booked this hotel for its location which is great. Nice and efficient check-in along with free wifi. Room ok, bit dated and dark as inadequate lighting, but comfortable.The real negative for me is the food, it's average and expensive however the staff were very pleasant. Although it's a great location it's doubtful I would stay again.
