We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was quiet, large and clean. The décor is dated and needs updating. However the price of the hotel reflects this. The staff were friendly and efficient. The car park is very small so you may have to find parking away from the hotel. My only criticism is that the breakfast was... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Friendly staff and a great bar and function room. No time limit on the bar for residents either. Room was comfortable the bathroom did the job and facilities were all laid out ready for you. Morning breakfast was very enjoyable and you enjoyed a wide range of variety and not too expensive either. Would definitely... More

I booked at short notice and got a very reasonable price for a single room. My room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and good value for the price paid. I did not take breakfast so I am unable to comment on the food offering.

We have stayed in many hotels and the bed was the worst one we have ever slept in you could feel the springs every time you moved. Breakfast was okay but the service was not we waited for several minutes before anyone came... More

Needs demolishing, decorated during world war 2 and serving food that looks like it might have been sitting on the side since then. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. DISGUSTING had a burger that tasted worse than horsemeat and my wife had carbonara that looked like scrambled eggs. Staff were very helpful but this hotel is well passed its sell by date.
