Stayed at this Hotel to go to a friend's wedding that was local to here. There is little choice of Hotels in the area, so this one was picked. Externally not very pretty, internally the Bar area is fine, the rooms a little tired, but reasonable size and clean etc. The rooms are a little short on facilities - ours... More

As mentioned by others ... a clean hotel, but the rooms were soooooo hot !!! We asked at reception if they had any fans and were one of the lucky ones ... or so we thought !! They did indeed have one last fan available and it was bought to our room - however, the stand was broken so it... More

This is definitely not the kind of hotel you'd book for a romantic weekend but if you want a clean room and comfy bed for the night then it fits the bill. The hotel itself is located in a rather unlovely 70s style building and the decor is very dated (though rooms on the ground floor are apparently being modified),... More

The overall impression is that the hotel needs a good redecoration. It's clean but needs sprucing up. The room was adequate but unbearably hot with no air conditioning and no fan provided My friend who had a different room on the other hand found it reasonably comfortable; so avoid a West facing room! The restaurant meal was excellent although they... More

Nice clean simple hotel.if you stay on the top floor"only a two storey building" please note it has a flat roof. So on hot sunny days the roof turns into a giant heater.even with a fan in your room with a window open its WARM.....to say the least. Im sure the ground floor would be cooler, but couldn't get a...

Stayed at the Marks Tey for one night on Friday 27 June. Checked in early as room was ready, nice quiet large room with very nice bathroom. Did not eat in hotel but had drink in bar that evening and was impressed with the professionalism of the bar staff whilst dealing with a disgruntled customer. Breakfast was very nice lovely... More

Stayed there recently for the first time, Staff were good and W**** the waitress was great. The place is quite opulent looking inside and well kept. The rooms were very nice, I got a good nights sleep. Ordered a fish dish and was told I'd get cod - but I got pollock, that was a bit disappointing. Overall a nice... More

Check in was a nightmare. I'd requested a twin room and asked for it to be a quiet one since I was travelling with my elderly mother. I was already disappointed that the hotel didn't have a lift- but that was my fault for not checking. Check on time was 14.00. I arrived at 13.50 and reception couldn't allocate a... More

I recently stopped here and it was a total disappointment. To make matters worse we had customers with us. No air conditioning in the rooms which made the rooms unbearable as it was a warm day. Then the evening meal was shocking, we had a set menu which was a very different. The prawn cocktail was average but the Marie... More

We were fortunate enough to stay here while travelling through and I have to say that our overall experience was very good. Although pricey our twin room was clean. Only problem with the room was that the TV was placed flat against the wall with no option to change the angle so viewing it was limited to one section of... More
