It was a bit noisy as our room was facing the roundabout, so we shut the window and used the air con instead. Both shower heads were leaking (In shower and bath., I don't understand why the toilet is separate from the bathroom. The doors slammed so loud that they made us jump a couple of times and woke us...

Stayed in this hotel for a night and found it to be good value. Had a spacious room with a good queen size bed. Good location near the centre and the harbour, cinema and restaurants. Would definitely recommend it.

We had dinner in the restaurant one evening which we regretted as it was just ok and a little expensive. The bar closes at 11pm so when we ordered drinks after hours a form had to be... More

My wife and I stayed here for a Saturday night en route courtesy of a very good value deal, we were very happy with the standard of welcome and accommodation. Breakfast was everything you could think of and we left with a smile

Just had a 2 night break in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We upgraded from a standard to an executive room for just £15 a night and for that we had a larger room, dressing gowns and slippers, faster wifi and a nespresso coffee machine. The room was very clean and there were toiletries in the bathroom. The front... More

When in doubt I pick a Novotel when travelling. If they have any character buildings I have yet to find them, all the ones I have stayed in, including this one are several storeys of basic box design. If you don't mind that if you are not a seeker of quirk I don't think think this hotel will disappoint but... More
