We stayed there for a month between moves, very odd place to be called a Hotel its more like a boarding house. The bar is not open every night, we never found the restaurant open so didnt eat there and never anyone at reception. Okay for one night but ...... The sheets were changed once a week but the sachets... More

It's all well documented by others, all totally true. This is a strange place which has no cash so no staff. We'll be talking (laughing!) about it for years. The bedrooms were comfortable and Wifi was good so you can get away with it. The breakfast was terrible, in the most depressing surroundings. Thanks goodness I had company. The other... More

a few people have said its a strange place . I didn't believe it but its true . The dial 200 at reception is most odd. They have a automatic light system that comes on when you enter the corridor but a good few seconds delayed so your in the dark for about 5 seconds. most off-putting. The room was... More

After a booking blunder at a different hotel l was found needing a room at late notice and this was the only hotel with availability. After a four hour drive, it was this hotel or a sleep in the car. On reflection, the car would have been cleaner and more comfortable. Room was dirty, mattress was very poor and the... More

On arrival at the hotel the person on Reception said that he wasn't sure if he had received the on-line booking from Booking.com so he asked for my phone so he could see the confirmation email. I was given Room No 20 and the door lock was faulty and although I complained I was told I had to play around... More

To echo other reviews, very strange place. Was spotlessly clean on our visit, rooms and communal areas alike.. Didn't go for breakfast.. it pushed the room price up 22 quid despite the card in room saying it only 8 quid! Poor maths on the receptionists part I feel. The interior of the bar is like something from a 1970s cruise... More

Upon arrival, the receptionist took my payment and then as we were beginning to walk up the stairs she stopped us to make a point of "no parties or additional guests", which we both found rather strange! By which she meant that she anticipated that we might be wanting to invite a house of guests round to our hotel room... More

Stayed at the gate hotel for two nights whilst my daughter was in hospital. Place is dated and needs redecorating. However.room was clean and the bed was comfy. First night I.was.freezing cold but was told.this was because the radiator wasn't switched on. Probably should have checked it very late arrival and just fell into bed. Maybe the room should be...

Hmm. I had the "dial 200" treatment at reception and found it a bit quirky, but to be fair the room was ok, the tv and kettle and ensuite facilities worked, (shame the free wifi didn't though). I was surprised there was no restaurant for an evening meal onsite, but fortunately it's only a short walk to the old town.... More

The hotel is very closed to station. and also very closed to the town centre. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and everything worked fine. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice. There was a cooked breakfast too which my girlfriend really loved. Would recommend this hotel to stay and look forward to come... More
