Our room was eventually given only to find that someone else had already occupied it! We had to ask the maintenance guy to let us in an adjacent room Decor... More

We stayed in the older part of the building. which suited our needs as we booked very late and needed to rest for the night. The room it self was a good size but needed a really good clean. Spilt coffee /tea up the wall and marks on the carpet. A mattress protecter that stayed on the bed would have... More

It was embarrasing and stingy. A friend of mine had their funeral there and complained as well. I went to a xmas dinner caberet eve. The... More

Not sure how they worked that one out. Room was basic, clean to a fashion. The bathroom was disgusting . I was too tired to... More

Despite contacting the hotel by email and phone requesting an earlier check in we arrived at 12 noon to find we had no room between us to get ready in. Another friend who booked that morning did however manage to get... More

Have stayed here many times as it is close to family. Since becoming a Best Western the rooms and cleanliness have much improved, however, it is always a bit like camping there as things go wrong! This time our first room had a terrible moldy smell in the 'superior' room we had booked and we had to move. (We suspect... More
