Our room was one of the unrefurbished which was very tired looking and in need of total refit as several things not working or broken or dirty/stained/marked. Builders also made noise before 9am, even... More

(I had read previous reviews that it looked a bit tired and shabby,... More

Very pleasant stay at this hotel. We only needed one nights accommodation with the children and the dog, this suited us perfectly. Good location, plenty of nearby food outlets. Overall good value for us.

We stayed for a Saturday night. We were warned it was still to be renovated but we found the accommodation fine. The room was a good size, clean with a comfortable bed and nice linen. Shower was a bit pathetic but ok. Good tv with freeview. The lady behind the desk was extremely helpful when we had a minor problem... More

On arrival the guy at reception (alex) was very friendly, he made a small error in making us pay again, which... More

Having read previous reviews about it needing a refurb, we were concerned but the room was really clean and fresh. All the bed linen was clean and so to were the towels and the bathroom. We've got no complaints. Look past the tiredness. Alex,behind the desk was so helpful!! The Toby Carvery was next door and convenient for meals. Fantastic... More
