Stayed 3 nights over the weekend at £45 per double room including breakfast,what a bargain nightly rate. Rooms are tasteful and the bedding/towels are spotlessly clean and white. Breakfast is cooked to order and the bacon/sausage are of a very high quality. Nice cocktail bar in the hotel which is busy but not full of kids which is an added... More

Travelling solo for business. I have stayed in many hotels and this was a very basic room and bathroom, it did not give you a fresh clean feeling. Was clean but not spotless, very old fashioned. Breakfast was really good, good variety and service. staff were friendly, polite and helpful. A lick of paint and some updated rooms would be... More

Can't comment on bedrooms but the function room for weddings and christenings etc is very good. We had a christening here and had a lovely day. The function manager was excellent, everything was taken care of and he was very accomodating. The waiting/bar staff were friendly and efficient. The room looked lovely, only downside was that it was very warm... More

First of all.. ignore the poor views of this hotel. We arrived at the hotel arround 2pm..we did think ' oh my god look how shabby it is (laughed)' but inside was suprising. The woman at the front desk moved her car for us so we could park inside instead of paying across the road. Was lovely. We was given... More

We stayed one night on Saturday and booked over the phone. The girl was adamant we had to leave credit card details over the phone to secure which I wasnt happy... More

Stayed for one night and thankfully it was only one night. Very noisy location, if you want a decent nights sleep don't bother. Nightclub next door and so unless you want to listen to the drunks at all hours I wouldn't bother. If the windows were double glazed then maybe it wouldn't of been to bad. Local clock chimes throughout... More

Stayed here with a last minute booking on a Saturday night, the reception area and rooms were nice, but the area is so noisy. If your wanting to get some sleep I wouldn't bother booking here as you won't get any due to the various nightclubs nearby! Was woken up at 1.30am by music and loud drunken people, this kept... More

Not too impressed, entrance,stairs and rear entrance could have been cleaner. Hotel a little tired and could do with a refurb. Staff very pleasant. I attended a birthday celebration. Food indifferent. Will not rush back.
