First time I've stayed here and hopefully the last, shabby 80s hotel in dire need of a face lift, the only plus side is you get generous amounts of food. The room was clean the bed was comfy but only 2 types of beer on tap! San Miguel or carlsberg. Like it or lump it and for £3.20 a pint... More

Stayed here for one night with work. Room was terrible, so run down. Hotel is a shambles, a Breakfast was atrocious, the girls in the morning serving were clueless, this place is a total dump. If you need to stay here, take your own sleeping bag and towel and eat at McDonalds down the road

On this occasion really looking forward to see what had been upgraded - NOTHING! There were broken tiles in bathroom, dirty marks on bed linen, mould in... More

Plus:- Good location; good amenities; friendly welcoming staff: gym; pool; free wifi Minus:- tinned tomatoes for breakfast . . . . . .yuck! Only sweet thick German house wine; wifi didn't reach our bedroom Overall:- You get what you pay for! I liked the shabby, comfortable decor, though the hotel could certainly do with a makeover. The bedroom was fine... More

Went up for a womans football game. Service excellent, bar staff great fun, good breakfast selection. Would definitely recommend. The location had some development work going on and is in a lovely place, ease of access on the A90. Very simple to get in and out with ample parking. Great value for money.

Stayed here last night room comfortable we also went to the leisure centre pool which was nice & relaxing after a walk not bad for £45.00 B&B. The dinner at night was a carvery which was superb three course meal for £19.95 which was great value for money as the meal was superb & large enough for any appetite.
