Me and my partner stayed here for one night in April. The majority of the time only one lift was working and as we were on the seventh floor we needed to take this route and on a busy peak at the weekend it meant waiting a long time for a lift. The room was the worst I have ever... More

Stopped over before an early morning flight.We arrived late and booked two rooms, a standard double and a family room. Both eere in a terrible state of repair, walls, carpets marked, furniture falling to pieces.The bed was old and worn, and generally the standard was well below that of a reported three stars. We had the buffet dining, not recommended,... More

Come and stay here; it's great! This friendly, well-staffed hotel is battling an ill-deserved poor reputation, but is in fact light, bright, clean and in addition rivals The Hilton for amazing views of Derbyshire and Lancashire should you ask for a room on the 8th floor. In addition,the lifts work and are quick off the mark. OK, the hotel is... More

It's the kind of hotel where you know you are only going to be there for one night and you know that your car can remain there for the full two weeks. We arrived about 8:30pm and found our two rooms to be clean and comfortable but average and fine for what we wanted. We went straight to bed but... More

We booked one Executive Deluxe/Superior Room and two standard double rooms for a one night stay. This hotel looks horrific from the outside and then horrific on the inside but it gets a lot worse when you go to the lift and reach your floor. The carpets are disgusting, dirty and in desperate need of being replaced. When you get... More

Went on a Caledonian trip to Chester and Peak District. I had read the reviews prior to arriving. Inside it is a little dated and tired. There is a very very musty Damp smell outside the lift. That was the down side. Our room was large, bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was spotless, clean towels every day. Staff were... More

This is nothing like they advertise on their website. The room had a TV that didn't work, window that wouldn't open properly, furniture that was falling apart, and a shower that sprinkled water at you. Not only that but we had a nice nest of dead ladybugs in the window frame. Ordered the hotels 3 course meal on the first... More

Hi my partner and myself stayed at this hotel as part of a caledonia tour we found it to be clean and it was also very quiet. The food was also ok but not a very big selection . We also found the staff to be very nice we would use this again.

Stayed with our U11s Football team whilst playing in local tournament; Hotel rooms are appalling, not clean, unkept, TV's not working, small bar area and nothing for kids to do at all, we were told used as a DHSS hotel and it showed; Staff unhelpful and told us a pack of lies over local amenities in an attempt to keep...

Tired- looking with large amounts of paint peeling off the ceiling in the bathroom as well as mould. Carpets badly stained. Bed really lumpy and uncomfortable and, on top of that, I barely got a wink of sleep due to the noise from drunks outside and inside the hotel. Its only redeeming feature was that it is about a 3...
