Me and my girlfriend stayed here on 11/04/15 for just the one night. The hotel looks good from a distance and that's about how far you want to stay really...from a distance. Up close it looks tired and run down. The decor inside was something else! Dirty with daddy longlegs stuck to walls and doors. DO NOT BELIEVE THE PICTURES... More

Really friendly, helpful staff, but could have done with another staff member on duty. Room clean, spacious and comfortable. Good food choice and reasonably priced. Nice dining area and bar area, which had been recently refurbished.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights and could not fault it yes it could do with a paint job outside but don't let that put you off. Breakfast was self-service but was first class food. Rooms were spot on nice and clean.
