This hotel was affordable for the two nights while we were waiting for our flight home to Canada. The restaurant was just ok for coffee and toast at breakfast. We walked into town (a good 20 minutes) for all our other meals. The hotel is dated and kinda clean. The front destroy staff was helpful and friendly.

A last minute booking, very helpful staff who were more than willing to put an extra bed in for a child. The room was bright, airy and clean if a little compact. Was bitterly disappointed by the bathroom which was smaller than the wardrobe with a shower head hanging out of the wall and a plug hole in the middle... More

Not nearly as bad as some on here would have you believe. The bar area, restaurant and function suite are all refurbished. The gym is superb, with many machines I had never seen before. The pool area, changing rooms and the guest bedrooms are somewhat dilapidated with the ladies changing rooms currently verging on being ruins. I actually like ruins... More

I feel it's only right to rate for value for money. We were struggling to find an affordable hotel at last minute and this place was very well priced compared to everywhere else in the area. The rooms could definitely do with an update but for what we payed we really can't complain. The leisure centre facilities were very good... More

We were visiting family in the area and booked this hotel at the last minute and got very good value for money. All of the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our stay included breakfast which was very good. The only thing I didn't like was the coffee and tea wasn't served to the table it was in thermal... More

The main thing this place has is availability. The food is usually quite good, and reasonably priced although breakfast this time was unexpectedly poor. The rooms remain cupboard-sized, unheated, and without facilities for charging a phone or plugging in a laptop. The shower is a joke, just a nozzle over the toilet. The internet mostly works, though, if you go... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Actually it is really just a few outdated rooms stuck on the side of a smart looking swimming pool and gym, even areas of the leisure facility leave a lot to be desired. The room itself had no heating and there was a draught from the window. They brought an... More

We had a business meeting on a cold day in January. Firstly, the car park hardly had any spaces despite being quite large for a hotel of its size. I later discovered that this is due to the popular gym facilities- they obviously do classes and everyone arrives by car. Bear this in mind if you've got cases as you... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel for a Valentine's treat for us over the weekend. We had two nights at the hotel and I wouldn't fault it. The room was a tad small, but for both of us it was an ideal size. It was extremely clean and tidy and the cleaners visited the next day, so it was kept in... More
