We stopped at this hotel as it is only a short walk away from my sons house. The hotel is classed as four star, my rating would be three star. The bedroom had peeling lining paper, scuffed paint, a cigarette hole in the net curtain. The bathroom shower curtain had several rings missing. The wardrobe was very poor quality. DO... More

This is an old hotel, clearly 70s built with VERY long corridors and low ceiling where you can hit your head etc. Funny room numbering e.g rooms 236- 242 are on the ground floor. There is NO aircon and not even a fan in the room so avoid in summer- the top windows in the rooms open but then there... More

The whole hotel looks shabby and outdated. Probably the height of fashion in 1970's. Most other reviews seem to say similar. However we found our room to be clean and the staff we encountered were very pleasant although only one had English as their first language and some had very little english and could not actually have a conversation. The... More

I write this as I'm still at the property. I stayed for 1 night on business. Bit of a wait to check in but reception staff were friendly. Room 323 looks on to the rear car park. The room is extremely tired and nothing like the usual Mercure experience I have had in the past. Renovation is majorly needed. Other... More

We stayed here as part of a coach trip so checking was painless. Afterwards I did have to use the reception desk and found the girls very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a room on the ground floor near the swimming pool, so probably the furthest point from reception, bar and restaurant. The first floor is wooden so any... More

Stayed for 2 nights in June. Upon arrival instead of twin room we were given a double (travelled with my female colleague) despite specifically requesting twin! We were quite disappointed to see a double bed. When we complained we were told we'd need to pay extra to get a twin room which is bizzare!! Very poor service.
