Booked this on the day as a cheap, very last minute, stopover. Booked on the basis of the decent reviews. Arrived fairly late (about 8pm) so there was no available parking and had to park two streets away. Then entered into the reception area and stood pressing the bell for about 5 minutes before having to go looking for someone... More

We had a couple of drinks in the sports bar which had the football on. I did phone down to reception... More

Booked this hotel due to low cost and location within manageable walk to a function at the marcliffe hotel. Our first impression of the hotel was not a good one. Firstly the complimentary parking is limited so had to drag cases and bags some distance to the hotel as there were no spaces. On entering the hotel through the side... More

We stop here regularly and often sample the food - decent quality, a good menu, and a good atmosphere in the bar. Prices are reasonable and better than other hotels nearby for what is on offer. Weekly special - on this occasion it was chicken & ham pie - delicious!

Had read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor about the Great Western Hotel but I couldn't fault it at all. I arrived at 11.30am an my room wasn't ready but the friendly staff let me leave my car in the secure car park, a bonus for anyone who has had to spend money on parking in the city! Came back around... More

Good little hotel, great staff, very reasonable price. Good bar and restaurant and rooms fine and spotlessly clean. I will return when up on business. Got upgraded from single to room with balcony so all in all impressed.

Did not think much of the white wine or rose wine selection - too many Spanish wines or wines from Chile. Food was excellent. I don't know if it is normal to have live entertainment on Saturdays, but we had went out for a nice quite romantic meal, but that was shattered by the heavy rock music that started. The... More
