Just used this place for a cheap overnight stopover with the kids at half term. The hotel looks ok from the front and the reception and (small) bar area is ok but these areas don't reflect the rooms which are very basic with awful creaky beds that mean a bad nights sleep. Cleanliness was not great either and absolutely no... More

We stayed here about 11 years ago and had a wonderful time, so thought we'd relive the experience. It has obviously changed hands since then and we were left feeling a bit disappointed. The reception area is clean, but I didn't find it welcoming, the bar is a bit hidden behind a partition of flowers... like they've put it in... More

the hotel itself is nice clean and modern. Comfy?- id give it a 8/10 our bed was OK until you moved- it squeaked so loud and a lot -any time you was to breathe which was rather annoying if your a light sleeper like me and found it hard to drop off, so maybe this could be looked into- other...

Beware! This hotel is shocking! From stained chairs and lampshades, chicken pieces hidden behind the curtain to a rancid kebab smell in the air! I will not return!! We spoke to the hotel receptionist and there was no discount offered to compensate! Never

I'm so glad I didn't read the terrible reviews of previous customers. If I had I certainly wouldn't book this hotel but after my stay in logged onto trip advisor and I am genuinely shocked by the comments of others. I found the hotel to be very clean and tidy, in an excellent location and the staff to be helpful... More

This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed in. Mould in the bathroom. Dirty toilet underneath the seat. Fire alarm going off in the room. Smelly/musty feeling room. Ridiculously short breakfast hours. Charge for parking in the hotel car park. Hot water running out mid shower. Uncomfortable, cheap and noisy metal bed. Noisy water pipes coming through the ceiling... More

On arrival man at front desk was quite rude and abrupt but other staff are nice. The room is a bit small and bathroom very small but we were happy with the price, you get what you pay for. I noticed a hair on the pillow but other than that the room was very clean. It is close to restaurants... More

We arrived late at night, to a very cold welcome by a night porter. He told us where our room was, but nothing else, and was shirty about my refusing to leave a phone number or email address. He did not say breakfast is last served at 9am, early for a holiday resort. We went down at just after nine... More

Booked this last minute. Then saw on here all the terrible reviews.... so i wasn't looking forward to it. However i turned up. It was very clean and nice modern decor. My room was also very nice. Only things i could complain about would be the broken shower that was squirting water in all directions. And the tv which you... More

I don't understand why some people are making this whole fuss about paid parking and WiFi. The hotel states this on their website so why complain? I thought the room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable (remember this is 3 star hotel and you get what you pay for folks). Location couldn't be better, a 5 minute walk to... More
