Are Group 4 running this hotel? if not I suggest they send their prison officers to the Ramada for training, it will certainly cut down the reoffending, I won't go back! "The staff" were weird, unfriendly and when you approached them you felt you were intruding on their furtive whisperings. One of the receptionists tried to smile but failed miserably,... More

We stayed 2 adults and 1 cold on a room. The hotel reception area is nice with a nice and easy check in. The rooms though are very small (we stayed in 128) the bed was very low, uncomfortable and very small for a double. I would suggest if you were 2 larger people would would struggle to sleep in...

we have stayed at the ramada encore hotel three times while visiting family and friends. The thing that keeps us going back to the hotel is usually it's cheaper than most hotels in the area and it's clean. Other that that its a bog standard city/ town hotel with no redeeming character like most of these type of hotels. That... More
