Had high hopes when I read the recent reviews about the refurbishment as last time we stayed, the decor left a lot to be desired. Sure enough they have made a really good job with contemporary colours, good general spruce up, new windows etc. Got off to a poor start as we arrived at 14.10 and had to wait 20... More

My partner and I booked this quite late and paid £10 more than we would have done for a Travelodge at a services. We were very happy with the reception staff he was extremely polite, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and bright with a lovely bathroom, it had obviously been refurbished. Tea and coffee making was available and... More

The hotel is clean, lovely rooms and bathrooms, great location for city centre and service was with a smile. The biggest let down was the walls were to thin so it felt like the room next door was in bed, had the worst nights sleep! I know it's not the hotels fault that they had loud guests but I shouldn't... More

Having stayed here before it was fantastic to see the newly refurbished hotel, the new carpets and paint job throughout were lovely and the rooms were a million times better, with brand new fitted bathrooms and lovely deep window ledges making the biggest impressions. Unfortunately thats where the changes stopped! We arrived around 9pm to find the hotel closed with... More

The smell of paint was still fresh on the walls when we stayed over. Having booked last minute THEN read the Trip Advisor reviews (schoolboy error) I was filled with dread in the hours before we checked in. On arrival I was hugely relieved to find a clean and fresh reception area with a friendly welcome from the staff. The... More

Nice new modern decor in recently refurbished hotel. Had spacious ajoining rooms for family stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful. I would certainly recommend it to anyone needing a hotel in the area. Good quality food also available in ajoining bar/restaurant.

Very modern and comfortable. Seemingly, today is the first day open since major refurbishment but We would have no hesitation in recommending it. This is a high standard refurb and feels like a high quality establishment. Beds are big and comfortable and there are several pillows too.
