A Hotel which does exactly as you would expect from a decent quality chain hotel, with room and breakfast to an acceptable standard but of course without any particular charm. Staff were naturally friendly, though, and the sauna and pool complex was good. Good pubs locally mean you do not need the restaurant in the evenings.

We stayed here with a coach party and were very pleased with our accommodation and service from the moment we arrived to when we left at the end of our five day stay. The checking in process was very efficient and our bags were soon taken to our rooms for us. The twin room was very comfortable - nice to... More

Good standard of all-round care here. Travelled with a coach party and the welcome was particularly good and efficient. Evening meal one night was a disaster but complaints were accepted, apologised for and we continued to be very well looked after thereafter. Would stay there again. The only possible downside is a query about security as it was very easy... More

Friendly service, reasonable menu, well appointed clean rooms, free wifi and reasonable rates. Does everything you need for a work night away. It's not the type of hotel you'd stay in for a romantic weekend break, but I don't think it's trying to be that kind of hotel. I've stayed here several times for work and it's consistently delivered on... More

Whilst this may not be the best hotel that I have ever stayed in, it could well be the best hotel that I have ever stayed in for the extremely modest price that I paid. The guy on the reception desk was really friendly, my room was more than adequate and there's a swimming pool. I chose this hotel because... More

I've just returned from 2 nights at this hotel. If you need disabled facilities, efficiency and well trained staff, don't stay here!! My husband and I took my 90 year old mother and his 86 year old mother as part of my mother's 90th birthday present. I'd booked a wheelchair access twin and an executive double room for us. We...
