We were slightly nervous about staying here as we'd read some awful reviews on here but we were pleasantly surprised that we experienced nothing like other reviewers. (Im guessing they must be fake.) Becky was the first member of staff we met, she was friendly and professional. The hotel is situated above a nightclub so it doesn't take a rocket... More

We stayed at this hotel and encountered none of the problems of previous reviewers. After booking in we went to our allocated room, which we found several corridors and staircases later. The corridors and staircases needed redecorating and a couple of the corridors smelt fusty. The receptionist was pleasant ( she wasn't the red haired one mentioned previously ) The... More

This has a good location in the centre of town with a council car park round the corner, but this is limited to 2 hours during the day. It needs a complete refurb, but it is very good value for money. I was there for one night for business. I am not at all sure if I would like to... More

We have been staying at this hotel for the past 10 years but this visit was dreadful. Our party booked rooms in advance only to find they had over booked and told two couples in the party that although they had a booking they didn't have a room. The rooms are basic my room had a radiator that was boiling... More

I stayed for 2 nights over the Elvis weekend, and really enjoyed it, staff were friendly and the place had a nice atmosphere, the room was clean and quite big. On the Friday night there was a really good band playing. Breakfast was very nice. There is no car park with the Hotel, but just 2 mins down the road... More

Hotel didn't have parking, not even given an indication of where the nearest parking facilities were. The porter/bar attendant, wasn't communicative at all, no eye contact, not even pointed in the right direction of the room, let alone shown, and that was while we waited for someone to come to reception in the first place! Not value for money on... More
