Stayed here on a business trip, never stayed before but first impressions are excellent. Despite heavy renovations (and smell of paint) the hotel is impeccably clean and tidy, with a large open area bar and dining room. Rooms are clean and modern, and apparently being renovated soon too, though I have no idea why as they are again clean and... More

Stayed the one night here on business. The hotel is modern, clean and well maintained. The rooms are nice and modern if a little clinical. Based on location it is impressively quiet - being so close to motorway and trainline. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only criticism is that the breakfast is very basic and the wifi is...

Affordably priced, good location and not too noisy with the motorway and train track running close by. Good amenities near by, good parking room was well equipped and laid out. Only let down was the bed - not that comfy.

I had several problems whilst at the hotel, one regarding the failure to remove certain items from the refuse of previous guests. The management however swiftly rectified this and apologised profusely. The staff are pleasant and a reasonable car park and breakfast available.

This is not a hotel. It's a special branch of hell. We booked this hotel for 3nights but checked out after the first night and moved to a better hotel. The staff here are extremely rude and unwelcoming. They spoke condescendingly to us and even though we had booked 3 rooms at a special to include children they claimed we... More

Just had a 5 night stay with 10 other people and found the hotel to be clean and with plenty of parking . Generally the staff were very helpful except for the man and lady on reception the first few nights. Everyone felt the same that they were very abrupt with any requests and when we tried to get a...
