What a joy when I Arrived. Clean, modern, lovely room, fantastic shower with a great view of... More

travelled over 400miles with friends from Devon for a short business meeting in the area, the hotel may look a bit drab and dreary outside and a little dated inside but everything is clean, tidy and working, the room was great, the staff where great and the food was great, only criticism would be the temperature of the room, it...

At a loss to understand the negative views. Have stayed here before no problem and read the reviews and thought 'maybe not this time'. Price convinced me so 4 of us did. I have spent 42 and 60 nights on cross country trips in the USA staying in motels. There is nothing wrong with this Hotel/Motel. Bed was too big,... More

I have stayed in many places at many price brackets and the true measure of a hotel must be taken with regard to it's price. I booked a stay here expecting a travelodge type experience. It was well beyond that. for £68 we got a room that was clean, large, welcoming and warm There was a trouser press, a large... More

Booked 3hrs before setting off for an overnight stay, read reviews so didn't expect too much but was pleasantly surprised, room reasonable size, bed clean although double bed had single quilts on but was comfortable, shower was huge. Breakfast was unbelievable quality better than expected in a budget hotel as good or probably better than the Hilton we stopped in... More

Just spent two nights here and had a good weekend. Bedroom very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Bed fine as was the breakfast. Booking was simple and check in easy. All the staff were very nice and attentive but never in your face. Only problem we had (if you could call it that) was one of the bulbs... More

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights over a 2 week period. I'm lost for words really. It's friendly. It's dated. It's modern. It's basic. It's a difficult one really. Good breakfast tho. Don't know if I would take the wife but ok for digs while working away from home.
