My husband booked this for us for a two night stay. I have nothing good to say about this hotel and honestly it resembled a youth hostel rather than hotel and at that I have stayed in better hostels. I should have known the standard of this hotel upon arrival as when we pulled up the bins are at the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night, and it was one night too many..the whole place is tired and rundown, with flaking paint, holes in walls and damp patches, we paid nearly £100 (and that didn't include breakfast) for the night and we've stayed in much nicer places for half the cost, we're not fussy people...

We stayed here for 1 night. It was reasonably priced. The room was quite small (no issues with that) but there were hairs on the windowsill, shower and bathroom shelf. Clearly the cleaners had not really done a proper job. The reception service was excellent and I did mention to to them and they noted it in the book. We... More

All I can say is staff where friendly, but the hotel was unclean and needs some TLC eg. Skirtings need cleaning, corners, needs paintings I can go on... There was blood stains on the bed covers a funny smell in the room and corridors. Someone had written on the wall s***hole (109). In the morning we had breakfast with the... More

I feel quite bad on some of the staff writing this because they were quite nice but the whole stay here was just so disappointing. We bought a deal from wowcher for £49 which gave us a nights stay, beer and burger evening meal and a breakfast. When we called to book they were very pushy to get us to... More

My husband and I stayed one night and when he went in for his planned hospital stay I stayed on for a further 2 nights. I asked to stay in the same room when we first arrived which wasn't a bother. We booked buffet breakfasts on arrival which were very nice and included all the usual items. E.g. scrambled eggs,... More

This was a basic hotel. The bed was very uncomfortable: visibly sagging into the middle and creaked and groaned whenever we rolled over in the night. Rooms were only cleaned in the morning, so as we were out late and up at around 11 or 12, our room was never cleaned. It was missing really obvious stuff like a hook... More

We were disappointed with our recent stay at this hotel. The overall housekeeping standard was poor. Room was not well vacuumed and in the bathroom there were rust marks at the hand rail and the shower curtain had brown stains at the bottom. The window frame was broken and the fitting for the blind had come away from the wall.... More
