Prices are high for what you get, breakfast extra!! Thinnest quilt more like an old fashioned throw!! No heating on spent a cold uncomfortable night will not stop there again. Staff on arrival rather miserable, not what you want when you are using their facilities and they want you to return.

Stayed for 2 nights and had a nice experience, very friendly and helpful staff, warm rooms, nice bed and a great shower. But. The old place has been run down, and it seems it is getting a slow but sure improvement plan implemented. In places the carpet is brand new, in others worn out. Curtains are all new but the... More

Easy check in to room 107, beware the lift has an external steel door that will CLANG shut behind you if you don't control it. Interesting folding 2 part door inside the... More

After settling our... More

The hotel is average it needs a bit TLC in places. The staff are friendly enough, the breakfast is good. But if you travel out of season they do not do evening meals unless they have a coach trip in. The room was large and clean enough although it was at the side of the hotel over looking the back... More
