We had two days and night stay at this Hotel. When i first entered into this room, my first impression was wow. The room was very clean and well dressed, toilets and everything was beyond expectation. I found myself forgotten all my stress when i entered into that room and jumped into the bed for a sound sleep. The hotel... More

We were so cold as there was only 1 radiator, we were sitting in coats and blankets at 5pm! every day was the same.. we stayed for 3 days... More

Booked one night here through laterooms.com paid £32 & to be honest wouldn't like to have paid much more for it!! We were met at the desk by the receptionist (possibly the owner) she was ok,not very talkative. Most places we've stayed at along this road the people have informed us of events that are on,which buses take you into... More

Upon arrival reception staff (ladies) are very friendly and welcoming, and do attend to your needs, unlike management just rude. Room was absolutely freezing! radiator did not work properly, no hot water which was a nuisance, toilet kept making a loud and monstrous sound throughout our stay. Carpet stained and dirty, TV out of use, no lamps at bed side.... More

Booked a party in their function room and was phoned 11 days before the event to say they had double booked and were unable to cater for our party . . . Funnily enough it was on the International rugby weekend!!! Very disappointed and the points awarded in the score are based on the fact we were unable to judge... More

Two double bedrooms booked at short notice for six nations rugby for 1 night only. Due to scarcity of availability ended up paying £120 per room for a room that would normally go for £20. However checked in early as rooms ready, receptionist helpful re buses etc but our room only just fitted a three quarter sized bed,when pushed up... More

We stayed for 3 nights and in this time we were mostly without hot water and the room did not get above freezing!!! The tv didn't work, the walls were paper thin... More

This place was just about adequate, but here are my grumbles. First, there is an extra charge for cards, both debit and credit, and an extra charge for wifi. Also breakfast not included in the price. I like value for money and with these extras I paid nearly £80 for a very small room. The wifi was slower than slow... More
