We use this hotel a lot for our delivery drivers, never had one bad thing to say about this hotel. It is always a first choice for them :) The rates are very cheap paying only £40 a night. I spoke to a lovely man called James this afternoon who managed to make a reservation at such sort notice even... More

First impressions of the room were good – high ceilings, decent décor, nice big comfy bed, warm – but the bathroom was a bit of a let-down. The floor needed sweeping and the shower cubicle was a bit grubby (although the shower itself was fine and the tray was double-sized). The hot tap on the basin was missing its centre... More

I had basically arrived at this hotel very late and a couple of my party had booked the wrong dates for their room. James who was on duty basically went above and beyond to ensure that we were put up somewhere even though the hotel was practically full . On arrival James also called up a local eatery on my...

I rang the hotel to confirm my booking the day I was arriving only to realise that I had stupidly booked the wrong date. James at reception went above and beyond to accommodate my group and was absolutely delightful about the whole situation. If James had not been so helpful we would have been sleeping in a van! When we... More

Appalling service from staff who behaved surly and consistently negative throughout. Numerous interactions with staff and never a smile or even a thank you at any point... Common courtesy surely ?? Food was disappointing and poorly cooked at carvery lunch ... Wish we had read tripadvisor beforehand and not bothered to even think about going to the poorly staffed "pub"... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I was quite surprised at the comments which were made in your review about the attitude of the staff and the general experience you had. Since the owners took over this business over 4 years ago, they have taken the hotel from a point of permanent closure to a place... More

Do not use the taxi service recommended by the manager as the driver claims not to know the area, then gets you lost and charges over £30 for what should have been a 12 minute journey. Beds are very uncomfortable making sleep difficult. Toilet doesn't flush properly. Food is expensive and not worth what you pay for. Staff look unhappy... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Upon reading your review of the hotel i felt it was very important for me to respond as although we would be the first to admit that there are still some areas in our hotel which need work, it was very unfair to blame us for the experience you had...

I was rather anxious after checking other reviews AFTER I HAD BOOKED!!! but when I checked it I said that I had read some less than positive reviews. I am not sure if this had any bearing on the room I was given but I was quite satisfied. The room was warm, well furnished, well proportioned and clean. Breakfast the... More

I booked this hotel through Bookings.com for a work trip for £45. I was expecting a decent setting as the book price was £99. On arrival i could see that it wasn't the finest setting but was decent for the money. The room was on 3rd floor and was suitably stocked with towels. tea, coffee etc, this is where my... More

I had a lovely big room with a great shower. All staff were polite and helpfull, with food being one of the highlights of this place. The room was not luxury but it eas clean and confy. For £45 per night i could not have asked for more.

When I told my husband that I had booked a Sunday - Friday stay at this hotel, he thought I was joking. He had read more comments on Trip Advisor than I had. Anyway...we arrived on Sunday evening to be told that the kitchen was closed as it was being 'deep cleaned' ahead of an 'inspection' the following day, but... More
