Stayed in room 81. Nice little room. Seemed very clean and modern (perhaps except the window and net curtain which were dusty and dirty). The wifi worked fine until about midnight and then stopped. When I rang down to reception the guy said it was the weather, but it was a balmy summer evening so that was rubbish. Still wasn't... More

Stayed for three days lately with partner and have no complaints. Good value for the price. Rom very clean, beds comfortable, shower fine, tea/coffee in rooms, TV could be a bit better I suppose. Had no wait to check in but I can see why that could happen as the staff do a lot of different jobs. A couple of... More

Room clean, quite and comfortable. Reception, yes there is a wait, not long, but when staff arrive they cannot do enough for you. Iron and board could do with replacing, but then I have never liked either!
