They need a college course in "how to clean a room" having said that they are very friendly and it's cheap enough for a weekend away I wouldn't like to stay here any longer. Breakfast is continental or you have to pay £4.50 for a cooked one which is swimming in fat. On the whole it's ok but needs extensive... More

The room was dusty and the toilet could barely fit a size 12 lass in let alone a fat man like myself, the showers... More

I stayed here for two nights on Boxing day and it was probably the worst hotel stay I have ever had in this country. It was that poor I couldn't even be bothered to write up a review on Trip Advisor and had totally forgotten about it until I saw that a review had been written on here three days... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while on business and were sadly disappointed. We were booked in by a member of staff that finally spotted us (day staff) since no evening staff could be found. She was actually the nicest part of our stay with her pleasant manner. The hotel is run down but that could be... More
