Unfortunately the extremely loud music (on an otherwise quiet weeknight) kicked off and continued into the early hours. Stayed at many, many hotels and have never had to put up with such a stupid amount of noise, coupled with the drunks screaming this made... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Firstly may I apologise for the noise you endured during your stay. Unfortunately you were incorrectly allocated a room that was reserved for the people attending the event. It is never our intention to put guests in rooms where the noise from parties in the hotel can affect their night sleep. Can you... More

Stayed here recently and was very impressed. Greeted with a very warm welcome by the receptionist. Rooms very nice and clean. Good bar area. Only 5 minutes from the motorway. We'll worth a look. Free car parking and wifi is a bonus.

Stayed here one night and the room was great with a friendly, welcoming receptionist. Breakfast in the bedroom was good. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant because the bar food had stopped.
