At first I tried phoning several times over half an hour and had no answer so decided to drive to the hotel in person since it was just down the road... More

Booked here for 1 night in a single room, wish I hadn't hadn't. Yes it was a good price, but you can Travelodge / Premier Inn / Ibis for less and they are generally a lot better. The bed was as comfortable as a sack of spuds. The bathroom had mould in a lot of places. The walls were so... More
