Read some the poor reviews and didn't expect to be happy with our stay. I booked a Michael Bible tribute note with stay over. I decided to upgrade to a clubroom (room 126) as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, so glad I did. The room was spacious, the bed was huge, it also had a good seating area with... More

Rooms are from the 1970s dirty and not worth the £60 a night. The whole place needs a good clean and bring up to date. I stayed here for business and was told there would be night porter on to let me in hotel if I came back after 11pm from my meeting when I arrived there was a note... More

We stayed here in November 2012 as we got the room for £40 instead of £120. Glad we didn't pay £120 as it wasn't worth even a quarter of that! Very dated, small rooms. Corridors are dark and feel enclosed. Main issue was we both went home barely able to breathe, not sure whether this was to do with the... More

Booked The Savoy suite on Saturday evening for my parents birthday celebrations for 120 I have to say it was faultless. Staff very good and efficiant. Reception staff polite and helpful. Rooms clean and tidy. Buffet food very good, and breakfast adequate. thanks to everyone who made it happen.

I'm a regular guest and whilst there have been some issues in the past, most of these have now been addressed. The food has improved immensely and as always I'm treated as a friend, not a as a customer. I have the option of staying at other hotels in the area, but much prefer staying here!

We complained again an hour later. Still no reduction in noise. The walls are thin for a start. The noise continued all night. We... More
