Arrived at night, looked quite smart from outside, a similar theme inside, I imagine it was at the top of its game in the late 90's/00's. I had booked a deluxe room, on arrival I would say the room was pretty standard, I've stayed in more deluxe Premier Inn's. However, the room was a good size and had a good... More

Unfourtunately I have to say that we had a very bad experience. We are clients of the Brandon Leisure and that's why we decided to celebrate our anniversary that, but the restaurant definitely have a very bad service. The food was all cold, the starters were served late. And at the end we wasted 3 hours! When we asked for... More

Isn't it a little mean to go to such lengths as locking the toilets of a hotel in order to prevent somebody who is in urgent need to use the ladies and also, to have a sign on the front door saying toilets for customer use only. Doesn't show much promise for the type of service that would be provided... More

Stayed here recently for one night and luckily it was only one night. The first room I was given was right next door to a busy meeting room on the 3rd floor so I asked for a different room. Hoping they would have a quieter room. I was moved around the corner and on entering the room it looked ok,... More

I picked this hotel for the location as it is walking distance to the town centre. Good car park. The Hotel is clean. Lovely bright reception and nice modern bar. I was surprised the Bar was so quiet. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable but a bit small and dated. The residents lounge was a room off the reception area... More

Nice hotel with old world feel but spacious,clean rooms. Good buffet breakfast, nice bar with good food options. Location of this hotel is a plus in a sense that it is not in the middle of town but on the periphery of town center which makes it quieter, still near to most of the restaurants and shopping centers.

Stayed here twice in the last couple of months. The rooms are clean, warm and bed linen comfortable. The bar menu is limited and breakfast is Buffett style which can be hit and miss. There is always fresh fruit and and a willingness of the staff to grant any additional requests. however the staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating.... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night room only . There was something nice about the room though it wasn't the most modern. It had a certain elegance about it and the street view below was quite nice.

Negatives- old fashioned room and poor tv channels. Breakfast. Positive- location in town is excellent. Some staff friendly. Would stay here again if we had too but would probably ask for a different room.
