We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and although they seem to have had a refit downstairs in the lounge/bar and breakfast area since our last visit, the beds are still uncomfortable with the children's sofa bed even worse, leaving my daughter with a bad back the next few days. But what made our experience even... More

Hello madmv I am sorry to read that my receptionist was miserable, I have had words and can assure you all feedback is taken seriously and acted upon, including the beds! We hope to be replacing these very soon as the next phase of the refurbishment takes place. I hope you return and find the experience more to your satisfaction.... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night, to attend a conference being held at the football stadium. It was comfortable enough, very clean & the staff were very helpful. Location was great as it was just across the road from the stadium. The hotel does not have its own restaurant, so had to go next door to an American... More

Hi Grace E We had some night shift workers staying with us and I promised as long as they did not disturb anyone having breakfast they could have a few beers before bed, it is not the norm to see lads drinking in the bar at that time :) I am glad you enjoyed the hotel and found it clean... More

Tidy and clean rooms, basic but get all what you need, brill shower, get what you pay for, breakfast ok, good coffees! Shame the sausages were Turkey though. Would stay here again, no complains and good value, good location, wasn't to far to walk anywhere.

Dear l-g3006 Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, just to let you know our sausages are pork not turkey :) We look forward to your next visit. Kind regards Denise Jennings General Manager More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times when traveling to the football, and the location couldn't be better for that, the stadium is right outside the front door. This trip was to visit a relative.

The hotel was a pleasant one in which to stay -- the usual standard room. Good breakfast. A little confusion on arrival in terms of our plans to use the sofa bed, which was not the most comfortable, but resolved by the front desk staff, who ended up making up the bed.

Hello Nancy R Sometimes when making bookings which are not direct with the hotel they do not enter the correct number for people staying in the room, this is sometimes where the confusion lies, but I am happy to read that my staff quickly resolved this for you by making up the sofa bed.

Checked in fairly late after a long drive. Hotel was very busy and desk staff were stretched. However, they were very helpful, polite and efficient despite the large number of guests waiting at reception. Clean and comfortable room. As usual, very generous buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. A change to arrangements meant that we had one of our children... More
