The public areas were clean and the bar staff ok. Breakfast was interesting with antique,well used toasters that need... More

Have read many revues on this hotel and quite a few bad. However, these mostly seem to be around the nights they have Cabaret, we stayed from a Tuesday to Friday so our experience was not bad. Apart from reception when a welcoming smile would have been nice the staff were friendly and the public areas were nice. However the... More

In changing rooms I had agreed to take a smoking room which i found a little pungent. it would be better if smoking was restricted to the outside terrace, I came with friends to... More

Situated on a motorway with basic facilities in the room - this hotel is definitely my definition of average! Bar and breakfast in the morning was very nice and no complaints with the food and hygiene.
