We have been two years on the trot now and look forward to going again next year. I would very much... More

I have read a lot of the reviews for this hotel and was very worried about the function I was attending. I was surprised it was not as bad as the reviews were saying. The outside of the hotel looks very dingy but Inside was acceptable. The room we had our function in was pleasant with nice crockery and clean... More

We did not feel comfortable walking on the carpet barefoot.. the bathroom was also filthy and we... More

Stayed here recently and basically the communal areas and rooms were dated and basic, the bathrooms poor and showers barely a dribble! There was 1 member of staff on that was manning reception, serving at the bar, cleaning the restaurant all on her own, easy to say the service was poor! There was a number of unsavoury type people sat... More

Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Room was ok needs abit of updating but it was warm and comfortable and offered everything we needed. Breakfast was self service with plenty to choose from. Dining room was clean and spacious. Our overall stay was good, cheap and cheerful.

This hotel needs to get into the real world, needs updating both in décor and in its practices. To find out that the restaurant closes at 8.30 and last orders is 8.15 is simply prehistoric. We checked in and were given keys to our room upon entering it was immediately apparent that this room was already occupied, we found dirty... More
