Decrepit room. Awful bed. Hotel very noisy (old timber floor, doors). No A/C but an old ventilator squeaking due to its age. Bathroom items (shampoo / soap / ...) Very cheap and bad. Reception / people not very friendly and useful (we had issues with our toilet flush and no one was able to fix it). Room was dusty and... More

The staff were very lovely. The room was a nice size, clean and had facilities such as a kettle with tea, coffee etc as well as biscuits. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh sheets and towels provided. Cannot fault the staff and organisation of the hotel! However, my room had an arched wall running along the right side of...

They are obviously working on upgrading this hotel and when we're all so used to corporate style hotels it's easy to pick fault. The public areas are all very smart and breakfast (buffet style) was great - best scrambled eggs I've had in 12 recent in B&B stays. The room was a little shabby - furniture especially but very clean... More

To be fair to this hotel guests are advised on check in that the hotel is under refurbishment. It becomes evident quite quickly that a substantial part of this hotel is tired, poorly decorated and in desperate need of an upgrade. Corridors are lined with threadbare carpet, the walls need painting and general decoration is not up to standard especially... More

We arrived from an early flight around 9am and were given a room at noon which I thought was reasonable. Lady on reception was very pleasant and friendly and changed our room from a twin to a double as we were "a lovely couple". lol She also said she gave us one of the best rooms in the hotel, Well...

The reception of this hotel leads to a bar and sitting area, which are nicely decorated. The building is impressive and the grounds are well kept. Initial impressions are positive, however sadly the rooms are then very disappointing. Our room was in the attic. It was clean, but very tired. The bathroom was poor. This could be a lovely hotel,...

I stayed in room 306 and everything was worn out, even the curtains had been eaten away. If it wasn't for the fact that I was there for business purposes, booked by the company, I would have left. The floorboards in the room above are so creaky you have to get up when they arise, in my case 06:30. It... More

I say surprisingly as reading other TA reviews gave me certain misgivings. However from an initial phone call to check I wouldn't be in one of the 'attic' rooms, to the pleasant welcome (and it was almost midnight) to the well-appointed room - all was good. It was a very short stay, but a pleasant one. My only qualm was... More
