No complaints at all, everything went perfectly with my one night stay. The hotel itself is not very pretty from the outside but it's fine inside, not a complaint just an observation! I had a really good meal in the restaurant as well with very attentive service and one of the few restaurants I've been to recently that when drinks... More

Not sure whether this hotel is really dated or really new! All is clean and tidy, but it's rather expensive for what you get, and having different pricing for different types of breakfast is a step back in time for me ("should I pay an extra £3 for the full English, or just have fruit and cereal and toast for...

I stayed here several nights a week for eight weeks running. The hotel itself was exceptional, the rooms are very nice and the suites are brilliant! The location, only 5 or 10 minutes walking distance to the town centre, is brilliant, especially if you want to eat out at night. Alternatively the hotel restaurant is brilliant, with good food on...

This is a relatively new hotel. Its fairly handy for town and the station, but would not be my first choice of a place to stay. On a positive note the receptionists were friendly and efficient. The room was clean, if a little cold. The negative would be the aircon unit, a floor standing affair that looked as though it... More

Good clean hotel for one night stay on business. Nice Italian food in the restaurant. The hotel is near the centre of the town. The reception staff were very helpful which was lucky because the heater/air conditioning unit in the room was blowing cold when I arrived but the receptionist soon had it warming the room.

Stayed here 4 nights, mid week for work. It's convenient for the town centre and railway, however, the car park entrance is not immediately obvious and needs better signage. Depressing looking square building. The room was on the 2nd floor, there is no lift, but the receptionist offered help with the bags. She told me they don't use the rooms... More

I stayed here for 5 nights for work. The hotel is a very unattractive building in a dull, modern area of the town but there is car parking. As far as check in and the rooms are concerned, think Holiday Inn Express. The bathrooms are basic, beds okay, tea & coffee adequate. However, the decor is bizarre and very 1980's.... More

Good value, close to centre, although entrance to car park a bit difficul to find so could be sign posted better. Filling up rest of review with # as it won't let you post any less than 200 charcters so you can't do a short review.# # # # # # # # # # # # # # #... More

I have stayed here many times as the location is excellent. A short walk into town and train and main road arteries are not far away, the rooms are practical and clean but all the bathrooms could do with a makeover. The staff have always been helpful. The restaurant was once excellent and served a good menu however the last... More

Hotel is very convenient for town, university and station. Easy parking. Reception was quick and efficient. Internet worked well. Overall decor of room was good but the bathroom would benefit from repair and makeover.
